There are many outdoor activities offered in and around Parys. I previously done some rive rafting here, which was a very enjoyable experience.
There are different tour operators offering a variety of outdoor adventure. You will be able t find details at the Parys Info Office. Other than river rafting, adventures include absailing, rock-climbing, canoeing etc.
If you visit Parys for the first time, this might be the best place to start. This tourist office offers very good info about the town and surroundings. The service is very friendly. You will find enough info on everything from accommodation to daytrips, restaurants etc.
You will find the office on your left hand side, about a kilometre after entering Parys.

As with the antique shops, the quality of works on sale varies from gallery to gallery. Some of these galleries do have artworks by some well known South African artists, and some have works by amateurs.
There are quite a few galleries (mostly on Breë Street) to visit and have a look.
“A celebration of life” is the motto at this Mediterranean/Asian fusion restaurant. The style is quite contemporary and serves good food.
The restaurant is also home to a Deli, where you can buy some interesting things. They do not have a huge variety, but do try the range of teas on sale.
