Graskop is a doorway leading you on your way to the Panoramic Route along the Blyde River Canyon, the Kruger National Park or even Swaziland and Mozambique, and is surrounded by mountains, lush forests and rolling hills of green. An ideal place for hiking or mountain biking through the tree plantations and grasslands, visiting the many waterfalls en route.
