Dôme mountains

Highly recommended
Around 80 volcanoes stretch 40km westwards from Clermont, between the Sioule gorges and Grande Limagne. They are fascinating all year round, beginning with the Puy de Lemptégy (1018m), a fine example of an open-crater volcano. After hiking to the Puy de Pariou (1 209m), a climb up the Puy-de-Dôme (1 465m) is a must - the view from the summit is extraordinary. The contours of the Puy de la Vache (1 167m) are typical of this mountain chain.
