Explore a world of volcanoes

The volcanoes of Auvergne are a unique landscape in France.


The most recent eruption of these young volcanoes was only around 8,000 years ago. The most famous are the puy Mary in the Cantal and the puy de Dôme, the highest of more than 80 volcanoes waiting to be discovered in the Chaîne des Puys mountain range, a UNESCO world heritage candidate! The diversity of the environment in Auvergne means that there are also crater lakes, forests and valleys to explore.
