Home to potters, actors, artists and a number of fantastic community-based art projects, this little town offers the visitor a relaxed but vibrant atmosphere. The road between Clarens and Fouriesburg is one of the most scenic in the entire country. Just beyond the town lies the Golden Gate National Park with its incredible mountain outcrops, clear streams and wildlife. The town also boasts a number of farm-stay accommodation opportunities, which means that visitors get to have an authentic farm experience ? Free State style of course.
