Hiking holiday in the Auvergne region

A hikers paradise - straight out of your apartment

Towards the Puy de SancyThe immediate surroundings of our accommodation in Le Mont-Dore offer endless hiking possibilities. The originally volcanic Sancy plateau is a true paradise for hikers. A unique location with large open spaces, rough nature and an extremely diverse landscape, fauna and flora.

Sign posted hiking trails

In this diverse environment over 670 km of sign posted hiking trails are waiting for you. From short but never the less beautiful routes for the whole family to more challenging day trips. The GR4 and the GR30 are only a few kilometers away from Les Camélias and the GR4E even runs along our garden.

Hiking holiday: 1 week in Le Mont-Dore or a hiking round trip

Walkers can easily spend one week at Les Camélias and do different hikes each day, but we can also organise a hiking round trip.

Tip: think of Les Camélias during autumn. The autumn colours are just fantastic.

Tailored advice

We can advise you about the different possibilities and have guidebooks, maps and GPS tracks available. If you do not have a GPS yourself, you can rent one at Les Camélias.
