Early morning, nature beckons. Just 75m from the gate, are a variety of walks in the beautifully maintained Clarens Nature Reserve. Follow a trail along the river to the dam or summit the top of the mountain and enjoy breath-taking views. Remember to scan the QR-code on the information board at any of the entrances and support the Clarens Village Conservancy that manages the Reserve.
If you like shopping, Clarens is a paradise and Fairview Cottages is less than 600m from the town centre. Check out the legendary Jacket Shop, as well as shops for blankets, leather goods, shoes, toys, knives and even a CBD shop. Two local mini-markets provide foodstuffs, there's a butchery and a braai shop, off sales, a coffee roastery that offers a wide selection of delectable blends and a local dairy farmer who delivers fresh milk daily from a tested Jersey herd.
There are more than 30 eateries in and around Clarens!
The selection is huge: Fine dining, Italian, German, South African, American, English, vegan, vegetarian, carnivory, pub grub, take-out and traditional. Two cheese farms are a short drive away. Don't leave without trying waffles, pancakes, "roosterkoek" and local brews to wash it down. Unwind at one of the local spas.
