Many French vacationers come to Auvergne for an escape to nature


The peaceful environment and gorgeous scenery inspire relaxation and outdoor adventures. Highlights include two of France's largest regional parks.

The Regional Park of Volcans d'Auvergne offers plenty of things to do for outdoor anthusiasts. This is one of the best places to visit in France to go hiking, cycling, and horseback riding. Fishing is also possible in the park's freshwater rivers and streams. On the serene Lake Aydat, swimming and boating are favorite summertime sports.

The Regional Park of Livradois-Forez, with its amazing biodiversity, also abounds with opportunities for bird-watching, nature walks, and hiking.

Auvergne also has many summertime events, such as the Concerts de Vollore classical music performances, International Street Theatre Festival in August, and the Fêtes du Roi de l'Oiseau (King of the Bird Renaissance Festival) in September.

Whether staying in a town or in the countryside, visitors can enjoy a vacation of outdoor activities along with the cultural happenings.
