Eye-catching natural beauty:

It’s impossible to convey in words the breath-taking beauty of this valley and its surrounding mountains. This is exactly why Clarens draws photographers and artists from around the world, to dip brushes into paint and to adjust lenses in an attempt to capture the sheer magnificence of all that makes Clarens simply magical.

Adrenaline-filled adventure:

You can feel the energy of adventure from the moment you are welcomed by Titanic Rock on entry to Clarens.  Hot air ballooning, horse riding, hiking trails, bike trails, 4×4 trails, white water rafting…..no doubt you get the drift by now! The list is endless, if it’s adventure you long for.

Rich tapestry of history:

100 years on, Clarens has a rich, tempestuous history that has left its mark on every nook and cranny in and around this village.  Bushmen’s paintings have place of pride on Schaapplaats Farm in the Golden Gate National Park and even dinosaurs have clearly left their mark for all to see, as has the Anglo Boer war.


The Clarens Conservancy is home to soaring eagles, and the Golden Gate Highlands National Park, just 20km’s away, is the playground for Black Wildebeest, Eland and Springbok, who peacefully share their beautiful spread with species upon species of birdlife.

Let the hospitable team at Clarens Eddies B&B and Self Catering be your hosts and your guides to a magical valley that fills all the senses far beyond sufficiency!
