Things to do in Clarens Free State

When you start out looking for things to do in Clarens Free State, perhaps the best place to start would be on the utterly relaxing end of the scale, rather than on the myriad of other things to do that are more physical!

Here’s a taste of a few of the 30 things to do in Clarens Free State:

Book a day at the Spa in Clarens

This means making sure you contact the team at Clarens Eddies B&B or Self Catering to make a booking for you at one of the awesome spas in Clarens at the same time as you book your accommodation.

Naturally, you can keep this appointment on hold until it gets closer to the end of your stay in Clarens, just in case you decided that you love white water rafting or zip lining and need a few knots rubbed out!

Soak up the natural highs

Even if all you do is completely relax in the comfort of your accommodation at Clarens Eddies, you’ll be breathing the purest air, giving your body the de-stress it really needs and nurturing your spirit with the beauty that surrounds you right from your window!

Hit the mountain bike trails & quad bike trails

Having to spend most of our days behind a mask due to COVID-19 regulations, imagine the joy and freedom of heading out onto some of the most spectacular mountain bike trails that won’t require a mask!

If something with a bit more horse power appeals, the quad bike outrides are out of this world in Clarens.  The scenery is something you’ll never forget, and, your spirit will rise to the occasion amidst the beauty and fresh air, without a doubt.

Enjoy the best trout fishing in South Africa in the Ash River

There’s nothing to beat the perfectly natural trout fishing conditions in the Ash River (which is also where you’ll find the best white water rafting too!) in Clarens. The Ash River is filled to overflowing with a healthy trout population, which easily attracts fly-fishing enthusiasts from around the world in their droves every year – depending of course on travel restrictions!

Whether you prefer to fish in a dam or in the river, you’ll find more than enough carp, bass, trout and yellow fish to keep you busy for days!

Take family & friends on at paintball

We can all certainly do with more than just a little fun and laughter at this time in history, and, what better than spattering your friends and family with a bit of messy paintball fun! 

Take to the sky in a hot air balloon

If you can gather up a minimum of 4 people for an unforgettable experience riding the thermals across the Clarens Valley, then do it!  

It’s an experience that will stay with you for the rest of your life, whether it’s a bit of excitement for the family or an extra touch of romance with your loved one…the memory made will be worth getting up with the birds at dawn!
