To the average visitor, Botriver might seem dull and boring, with nothing to do.
Au contraire, my friends.
This sleepy little town is bustling with activity: Botriver Hotel is being renovated, there are quiz evenings at the restaurant by the station and sporting action with MTB and trail running events in the area.
Besides the horse-riding, and quad biking there are hiking trails. Try the new 4-day Green Mountain eco route, a slack-packing trail with accomodation in guest houses and scrumptioous meals in local eateries. For the less industrious, amble through the vineyards or visit a restaurant or farmstall.
But there are also wine tours to take. Visit one of the wine farms in the Botriver district to taste the fruit of the 2011 harvest...
Many of the wine estates also offer accommodation, so if you find you have sampled too ambitiously, you can collapse onto a homely bed on the farm.
