Auvergne Volcanoes Regional Nature Park
The Parc des Volcans, in the heart of Auvergne, is made up of remarkable landscapes, flora and fauna. But it also owes its singularity to an entire rural community that has been able to retain its know-how and culture. The area encompassed by the Parc des Volcans has 4 national nature reserves: the Réserve de la Vallée de Chaudefour, the Réserve des Sagnes de la Godivelle, the Réserve du Rocher de la Jacquette and the Réserve Chastreix Sancy. Through its valleys, on the high plateaux and ridges, alongside the rivers and lakes, in the forests and through the fields, the park provides all outdoor enthusiasts with some fantastic trips along the trails, which are marked GR or PR.
