Run the Volvic Catchment Area Experience trail (46 km) on Friday 10 May, then retrace your steps on Saturday 11 May to explore the land home to Volvic natural mineral water.

Volvic natural mineral water reflects the powerful, abundant nature of its homeland. It emerges deep within Auvergne Volcanoes Regional Nature Park, France’s biggest regional nature park, and one of the oldest too. For around 100,000 years, the Volvic site has been the scene of numerous volcanic eruptions. As the lava and volcanic ejecta have filled ancient, steep valleys carved into granitic rock, breathtaking landscapes have formed. These flows have created a natural filter, giving the natural mineral water its low mineral content and unique flavour.

The catchment area is the place where the storm water and snowmelt slowly permeate the dregs and lava. Mostly covered with forestland and moors, this 38 km² area is attracting considerable attention. The CEPIV* association, created in 2006 by the Société des Eaux de Volvic and the towns within the catchment area – Volvic, Charbonnières Les Varennes, Pulvérières and Saint Ours Les Roches – works alongside local stakeholders to protect this exceptional natural setting.

Grab this opportunity to discover a magical place and the energy put into protecting it.
