La Bourboule - Le Mont Dore 2018 From a centre Self-guided
Walk over the volcanoes... 2018
At the heart of the ‘Volcano Park' of the Auvergne, and born five million years ago, the Puy de Sancy reaches a height of 1886 metres. It is a mixture of rounded shoulders, rugged cliffs and deep clefts, promising both close encounters and escapes into the wilderness. Keen emotions and powerful sensations – a full range of feelings can be pleasurably experienced here. Forget the passage of time, the treadmill of routine and the stresses of urban life. Liberating and regenerating: the mountain is at once the most soothing yet astonishing of companions.
And did you know this? The river Dordogne has its source at the foot of the Puy de Sancy at a height of 1350 metres.
