In the heart of the Massif Central, the Auvergne Volcanoes Regional Nature Park covers approximately 400,000 hectares. The Auvergne Volcanoes Park is at the same time an immense territory of greenery and forests, shaped by glaciers and dotted with lakes, a unique set of volcanoes, the youngest of which are barely cooled, a preserved nature that shelters a variety of flora and fauna, and finally, a rural society with quality architecture and authentic know-how, punctuated by the agriculture that has shaped the landscapes of the Auvergne volcanoes for centuries. To discover the volcanoes of Auvergne, there is nothing like hiking on the many trails set up in the park to criss-cross the many volcanic sites such as the Puys chain, the Sancy massif or the Cézallier plateau. The volcanoes of Auvergne are also a traditional cultural heritage through ancient volcanic stone architecture, 4,000 km of rivers with multiple lakes, a local gastronomy rich in exceptional cheeses, world-famous mineral waters, national nature reserves such as those of the Chaudefour Valley or Chastreix-Sancy. Finally, there are 150 communes spread over an entire territory from Cantal to Puy-de-Dôme and therefore the possibility to visit towns such as Clermont-Ferrand and discover, at the same time, the fascinating history of several Auvergne cities.
