We meet at On Any Day Adventures home in Pretoria for a fresh brew of coffee and a brief of what to expect on the charming retro-journey that awaits. On our bikes – we head to the Free State on tarred road for a retro-scape in the little quaint town of Parys.

Parys is set on the banks of the Vaal River and is uniquely built on Vredefort Dome, the largest verified impact crater on earth that is listed as the 7th World Heritage Site. Once upon a time, around 2 billion years ago – a geological phenomenon occurred; an asteroid collided with the earth at 30 000 kilometers per hour, forming one of the geological marvels known on earth; voila – Vredefort Dome! A surveyor saw it fit to name Parys after one the most beautiful cities in the world, which is set on the banks of Seine River – Paris.

We have teamed up with Tandem Skydive to give you the birds eye view of the vastness of the oldest crater on earth – whilst you quell off your thirst for exhilarating adventures and ease off all inner tension from the pressures of doing life in the cities! Tandem skydiving will make you feel safe and confident enough to free fall up in the air, even if it’s your first time. Their experienced team preps and gets you sky-ready to go for it in less than any hour!

We retro ride through the picturesque town filled with art, old architecture and antiques towards the Dog and Fig Brewery, set on Klein Afrika Farm. We stop for beer tasting and a sumptuous farm lunch. It is a Micro-Brewery where “savouring” your beer
is encouraged, i.e. take your time to taste each element that has gone into the beer, as opposed to “quaffing” per normal.
There is a “couture beer” that is engineered by masters who all have a background in science. They pour out their passion for a good beer into the craft and mechanism that guarantees balance of barley, hops and crystal water so the drinker can enjoy clear flavours and tastes! Your final brew ranges from creamy robust chocolatey stouts, to golden yellow pilsners. Finally – food, glorious food on a farm is served!

We zip back into town for brisk walks, shopping along Bree Street and find the “secret passage to Parys” with its shabby chic character from little stores, where we can shop for some collectables, art, gifts food and coffee, old school candy

It’s a sweet wrap – quaint charm meets geological wonder in Parys, all in one day!
We cruise-ride back to the Jacaranda city whilst taking it all in!

Fun Fact: Dog and Fig Brewery Beers are created using crystal clear water from deep within this ancient meteorite impact zone!
