Clarens is a small town established at the bottom of the Maloti Mountain. The Maloti Mountain is the main attractive feature of Clarens. Its natural beauty has been drawing people for years, and will for years to come. The Rooiberg is another famous mountain that has even the locals speechless. Clarens is well known for its alluring natural surroundings. Hiking is a very sought after activity for those who love to get out and enjoy the mountain air.

These Clarens mountains are incredible, but are mountains your thing? Clarens also has breathtaking dams, rivers and streams that are perfect for fly fishing. Clarens is one of the best Trout fishing spots in South Africa! There are so many activities to do in Clarens! Archery, hiking, golf, horseback riding, abseiling, mountain biking and even quad bike riding! And, my personal favourite, hot air ballooning! Who wouldn't want to experience Clarens - for the natural luxury that it is - in a hot air balloon? A once in a lifetime experience! Clarens has an endless supply of fun and culture to enjoy.

The best time to visit Clarens is the autumn and spring seasons, when the town is in full bloom! Clarens offers a bewitching display of fresh and light green blossoms in spring. While in autumn it offers rich red and rustic oranges blossoms. It's no wonder Clarens is nicknamed the ‘jewel’ of the Free State. Go visit this enticing and radiant town!
