Auvergne France

In the heart of Auvergne and Puy de Dôme, the Massif du Sancy was born 5 million years ago. Highest point of the Massif Central, the Puy de Sancy (1886 m) is the highest volcano in metropolitan France.

Land of water, the Sancy massif has several crater lakes (maar) such as lakes Pavin and Chauvet and the so-called dam lakes formed by lava flows, oh which Lake Chambon and Lake du Guéry qre great examples.

The Sancy is full of streams and rivers like the Dordogne River, with wetlands and peat bogs as well as many waterfalls.

It is also a territory with reliefs sometimes soft and round, sometimes abrupt and wild. The Massif du Sancy is a preserved natural land where flora and fauna mingle with harmony and beauty.
