All you need to know about your home in the mountains 

Clarens News has relocated to

Your handbook to Clarens

Since 2012 Clarens News brought you all the goings on and happenings of Clarens once a week. Always aimed at providing useful and positive information about this beautiful and interesting little village. After a couple of printed issues and ongoing development for another 5 years, it has become a huge collection of info and detail about your favorite village in the mountains, bursting at the seams with Conservancy flora and fauna, restaurant listings, live music updates and events for every weekend.

Of course since then shops have opened and closed, the village is becoming a town, and0 the Village Conservancy has only become better sign posted. Art galleries, restaurants, crafts and adventures all await the visitor to Clarens, if they only know where to look for the hidden gems and local treasures.

Now things have changed, and people want to know what, where and how to get there, and that’s where the Guide comes in. It is a map based interactive directory of Clarens and surrounds, giving you access to everything you need to know, and where it is.

While going through the wealth of work and information in the News, it quickly became obvious that it should remain as collection of articles and archives, available to the interested reader like a fascinating collection of threads to help weave the village into a welcome to the weary traveller.
