The Puy De Dome

Just to the west of Clermont Ferrand is an impressive volcano field, where 80 peaks run in a north-south line over just thirty kilometres.


The highest of these, the the Puy de Dome (1,465m) makes an excellent viewpoint. In the autumn, you can often see the peaks of the lesser volcanoes peeping above the cloud.

400,000 people visit the summit every year, many of them by car (toll road, with restrictions during the summer period), and there is a restaurant at the top.
