Bed and breakfast : Exploring the volcanoes of Auvergne

The volcanoes of Auvergne, overview tour !

Volcanoes have to be the beautiful visual brand of Auvergne, the leading Puy de Dome, imagine that you Auvergne, from living next to the almost forgotten ! caricature and I just...
Speak about the Auvergne volcanoes in 1 single article would be ridiculously gear, as this article is rather intended to serve as a summary where I will group with links all the elements a little volcanic in Haute Loire and Puy de Dome (mainly because these are the ones I know best).

La chaine des Puys, emblem of the Puy de Dome, aerial view

Auvergne is the largest province volcanic Europe, please visit account, there are about 200 volcanoes! (extinct volcanoes) what be head of volcanism in France (at least in the ancient volcanoes)...

+ The Puy de Dome and the Chaîne des Puys are of course the most emblematic of this past volcanic activity (and all Regional Natural Park of Volcanoes Auvergne, the brother of Regional Natural Park of Livradois Forez), Vulcania Museum takes the theme of the Auvergne volcanoes to build an amusement park all around!
That said, the tourism Auvergne Volcanoes is relatively small (compared to other region), it has a good potential for new discoveries.
Another exceptional place and yet so discreet Montpeloux with magnificent organ remains near volcanic Saint Anthème (63) was actually put enhanced by an infrastructure and even hosts a music festival.

+ But the Haute Loire is not rest, it also traces of volcanic activity, the Lac du Bouchet, the lava flow of Bourianne, the Miaune mount, the Peyramont mount, the Peatland volcano Mount Bar (1175m) Allègre, also with Mount Baury ... are all truly exceptional places to visit! the prefecture of Haute Loire, the city of Puy en Velay, still bears traces of this ancient geological volcanism including even into the building blocks of its walls! Le Puy en Velay is also the starting point of GR 40 the Volcano Tour Velay, a long hike...
These are volcanic soils that helped villages like Craponne sur Arzon have a good agriculture, this is volcanic soil that gives us all these beautiful forests, these beautiful spurces, with this perfumed mushrooms... in a sense we find the volcanism in the Auvergne cuisine !

+ Why not try to climb the volcanoes of Auvergne in road bike or in hiking ? or maybe you prefer to make a Auvergne motorcycle ride following the theme of volcanoes? passes, turns and descents guaranteed §
