Puy de Dôme, in the heart of a range of 80 volcanoes
Located only a few kilometres from the capital of the Auvergne, in the heart of the Auvergne Volcanoes Regional Park, Puy de Dôme is the highest point in the Puys mountain range (1465 m), which includes 80 volcanoes and stretches over an area of about 60 km.
As of spring 2012, you will be able to reach the peak of the Puy de Dôme on a rack rail train.
This panoramic train will allow you to safely reach the summit at any time of year, no matter what the weather conditions. Silent and ecological, this train makes the site all the more worth visiting with the spectacular panoramic views it affords over the Puys mountain range and the rest of the Auvergne region.
There is also a wide range of other outdoor activities that you can enjoy close to the campsite: mountain biking, horse-riding, paragliding, canoeing, swimming, and more…
The visit of the old districts includes the cathedral, the Romanesque basilica of Notre-Dame-du-Port, the Montferrand district and its Renaissance façades.
