Situated in the Free State Provinces, only a 3 hour drive from Johannesburg is a picturesque town, Fouriesburg.
The town is surrounded my rugged mountains and it is the best destination for an outdoor and adventure getaway. The town is also located on the border with Lesotho and the quaint town Clarens is a short drive away. If a quiet and scenic getaway in the countryside is what you are looking for, Fouriesburg is a top destination.
With so many hiking trails in the town, visitors can enjoy overnight, multi-day and even a few hours’ hikes. A hike towards the Mafube Mountain Retreat is one of the best as here you will also get an opportunity to see dinosaur footprints. Tourists also enjoy visiting the Golden Gate National Park which is with an easy reach distance. In winter, the surrounding mountains are covered in snow and spending a day climbing these mountains is worth the while as Fouriesburg is one of the few places that receive snow in South Africa.
Accommodation in Fouriesburg is the best around the eastern region of the province and makes a perfect fit whether you are planning to stay in the town or just passing by en-route to Lesotho. Fouriesburg accommodation offers a variety of guest houses, comfortable self-catering cottages and country houses.
