The small town of Clarens is situated at the foothill of its attractive feature, the Maloti Mountain and forms the third stop on our Bike Fest SA Festival Route.

The village offers beautiful natural surroundings of many things, such as another of its famous mountains, the Rooiberge. Pristine dams, rivers and streams that are ideal for fly fishing and the best Trout fishing spots in South Africa (SA) and great grade 3 and 4 water rapids when white water river rafting in the Ash River.

While the town’s great, open space of land, a non-existent luxury in the bigger cities is a chance to be out in the fresh air, participating in the towns favourite sports of Horseback riding or playing Golf. Archery, going on a Hot air balloon ride, 4×4 Trails, Hiking, Abseiling, Mountain biking, Quad riding, the list is endless.

With its mountains a green wonderland with the fresh light green willows an the season’s colours oranges, red and rustic brown of the Lombardy poplars is an unforgettable sight showcasing why the town is known as the ‘jewel’ of the Free State.

Cementing The Clarens Bike Fest event into the towns existing events calendar will  also add to the already huge tourism appeal of the town as hordes of Durbanites, Capetonians, Joburgers or whichever part of the world you come from come out to enjoy the town’s festivities whether for a day’s road trip with their family or buddies or for a longer stay in one of the many guest farm accommodations in the town. Festival accommodation partners include The beautiful self-catering Kiara Lodge as well as The Protea Hotel which overlooks the festival staging area.

Golden Gate Highlands National Park

Golden Gate Highlands National Park is located in Free State, South Africa, near the Lesotho border. It covers an area of 340 km2 (130 sq mi). The park’s most notable features are its golden, ochre, and orange-hued, deeply eroded sandstone cliffs and outcrops, especially the Brandwag rock. Another feature of the area is the numerous caves and shelters displaying San rock paintings. Wildlife featured at the park includes mongooses, eland, zebras, and over 100 bird species. It is the Free State’s only national park, and is more famous for the beauty of its landscape than for its wildlife. Numerous paleontology finds have been made in the park, including dinosaur eggs and skeletons.

Clarens Brewery

Clarens Brewery is one of the country’s first Brew-Pub, Cidery and Distillery set in the foot-hills of the magnificent Maluti Mountains where our fun-loving team has the thrill of brewing, talking, serving and enjoying great beers, ciders and distillate, all whilst being part of the fantastic craft revolution that is sweeping our country.

Their brewer, Stephan Meyer, is a true beer lover and was blown away by the variety of beers during a trip to the UK in the early 90’s and could not wait to start brewing his own. Clarens Brewery pure fruit ciders were born of a need to use all the fruits of our apple and cherry orchards and making cider is so much more fun than making jam!

The love of brewing and distilling drives them to innovate and develop new products all the time. Their passion for this fledgling industry motivates them to talk to, educate, challenge and transform the novice or traditional consumer into a craft aficionado and to engage with fellow-brewers to constantly learn, share and brew!

Tobias Art Gallery

Art Gallery co-owned by Tobias Viljoen and his life partner. His art has been exhibited all over South Africa and as far as the Netherlands (Schuivinge, Den Haag, & Amsterdam) and Belguim. His paintings are in private collections, spanning the world. In cities like, New York, Houston (Texas), Amsterdam (Compuware), London, and in countries like, Australia, Switzerland and of course in many homes in South Africa. Tobias also sources exclusive Home Decor elements that are sold amongst his own artwork Inspiration: Tobias is a graduate in Horticulture from Cape Town University where his overall love for things botanic started his journey into the art world and fed his creativity and inspiration for his landscapes. The rich colors of the South African landscapes combined with the rural elements, are the inspiration for his creativity in oils on canvas. His realistic approach and use of warm, vibrant colors contribute to his style which he describes as “easy” – because it flows without a struggle. He often goes to nature to be soothed and healed, and to have his senses put in order. Tobias’ landscape compositions evolve from original self-photographed pictures. His fulfillment becomes reality when the flow of energy in his art is experienced by the viewer.

Baris

The farm is situated 10km from Clarens in the picturesque Eastern Free State. Everything that happened on Baris since 1989, all the buildings, more than 100 trees being planted, the ever expanding garden was in expectation and preparation of something bigger. For us, Baris is a place where birds are welcome, trees and plants invite you to walk and listen and where every season captures you with its beauty. We longed to share Baris with more than just family. Part of the dream was converting the old sandstone milking parlour into a guesthouse, this renovation became a reality in 2015.

The fertile soil and abundant rainfall provides the ideal place to keep animals and plants very happy. This naturally led to diverse farming possibilities. In 2016 Baris welcomed a herd of dairy goats, Koekoek chickens, and the first sheep.
