Begin your adventure with a hike or a short walk in a landscape of volcanos, the emblems of Auvergne. Admire a volcano range that’s unique in Europe and listed as UNESCO World Heritage and one of the great sites of France. Explore the Limagnes fault, the Cantal volcano or the volcanic peaks of Puy Sancy and Puy de Dome!
As one of the great historical regions, Auvergne boasts a rich cultural heritage of great character. Without a doubt, you’ll have no shortage of castles and medieval villages to visit, including some listed among the most beautiful in France.
And just in case you’re concerned about spending your holiday a long way away from the seaside, don’t worry! Auvergne has no less than 40 lakes, some of them inside ancient volcanos, as well as some 25,000 kilometres of rivers. There are also 70 sites where you can swim, perfect for cooling off when it gets too hot!
Auvergne is also a land of unique culinary specialities, such as Puy green lentils, various mineral waters, classified wines, and 5 PDO cheeses, including Cantal and Saint-Nectaire. This has to be foodie heaven!
