There are a wide range of activities and things to do that one can enjoy whilst visiting Clarens.  What’s more there is something for everyone no matter what their age or level of fitness.  It’s not surprising therefore that Clarens is often referred to as the Adventure capital of the Free State. For more information, click onto the icons below.  These will take you to the information page for that specific activity, describe what equipment (if any) you need, and also tell you where to go and where necessary which adventure companies to contact. If, however, none of these appeal to you, you need never be bored in Clarens.    Take time to explore the town, browse the art galleries and shops, try out the various restaurants and coffee houses,  or take a drive into the surrounding countryside. (Click on the sightseeing/self drive option for a list of suggestions.)
