Spring time is never a dull day as there’s so much to do with many Clarens activities galore. It’s a chance for you to breathe in the clean air, go outside and be one with nature among the towns’ breathtaking Maloti Mountain and Rooiberge or take advantage of its rivers.
And one way to do this is to partake in the water sport activity of River Rafting by the Ash River, known for its crystal clear waters and exciting grade 3 and 4 water rapids. Or try your hand at Trout Fishing; Clarens has the best spots in South Africa. And since its spring the weather is warmer offering a great time to play in the water.
If water activities aren’t for you, then there’s still plenty to do on dry land too.
If you fancy some horseback riding, you can do so at Bokpoort Horse Back Adventure and Holiday Farm, which also offers activities of mountain bike riding, clay pigeon shooting and Archery.
Other outdoor Clarens activities to take part in, which aren’t as extreme is the regular fixture on the small town’s event calendar, NG Kerk Flea market held in December. And the Clarens Spring Fair held in September, where the public is invited to admire the various galleries.
Golf is also another firm favourite in the town, where you can spend a day teeing off on the lush green lawns at the prestigious Clarens Golf and Trout Estate.
The Free State province capital city, Bloemfontein doesn’t hold back either on fun things to do.
In ‘Bloem’ during spring everything ‘blooms’ especially its roses. The abundance of these flowers signifies what the city is about further represented through its Rose Festival held annually in October.
Something else that’s more abundant in spring is the birds, which can’t help but want to be one with and among the flowers. Well why not be one with the birds up in the sky and partake in skydiving at one of the oldest skydiving clubs, situated at Tempe Airfield only 10 minutes outside of Bloemfontein. They offer skydiving to all experience levels from tandem, static line course, accelerated free fall courses and progressive free fall training.
