Run the Chaîne des Puys Experience trail (83 km) and the Volcanic Experience trail (25 km) on Saturday 12 May, then retrace your steps on Sunday 13 May with an exploration of the Puy de Jume and the Puy de Ténuzet.

A representative from the Auvergne Volcanoes Regional Nature Park will take you through the history of the catchment area volcanoes, from their eruption through to their exploitation.

From drains to coconut canvas, braiding and thresholds, you’ll become acquainted with the maintenance and restoration techniques for our young and fragile volcanic soil and the paths used.

Learn to identify the green landscape among moors, lawns, hazel tree shoots, beech woods and spruce forests, before taking in the views from the summit of the volcano, maintained by the grazing sheep.

Finally, you’ll get an overview of how pozzolan is used, from the unusual character of the material to final insertion of this quarry in the site.
