Mountain biking is a popular activity and the Greyton MTB classic is hosted here. The Sonderend Mountain Range surrounds Greyton and there is a very popular Greyton-McGregor hiking trail. Permits are required for this hike from the Greyton Tourism Office at R50 per head.

A Saturday market happens across from the DRC Church on Main Road that sells mostly food and preserves, second-hand books and a few arts and crafts. Greyton has also recently become a hotspot for weddings. There are two very well-attended festivals that happen every year, the Classics for All Music Festival in the winter school holidays and the Rose Festival in October.

"We had a wonderful stay. The house is spacious and well equipped. Only one thing. They need a light above the braai. We had to braai in the dark on our first night and had to make sure we braaied before sundown after that. That aside, we enjoyed everything the house had to offer. Will definitely book again."
