Other winter activities in the Auvergne region
Besides skiing, cross-country skiing or snowshoeing there are many more things to do in wintertime in the Auvergne. What about ice climbing in frozen waterfalls? Some of the waterfalls are ideal for beginners. Les Camélias is happy to put you in contact with a qualified guide.
The area can also be discoved with sledge-dogs. During winter holidays and weekends the sledge-dogs can be seen on a special track close to the Pré Cohadon lake, behind Hotel La CaBanne at Murat-le-Quaire.
Les Ecuries de la Dordogne in Le Mont-Dore organises the whole year round tours through the Parc des Volcans. And in wintertime you can also do a "ski joering" workshop; standing on skis a horse will pull you.
Tired of all the outdoors activities? In Le Mont-Dore there is also a casino, a bowling alley, an ice rink and a covered jeux-de-boule area.
La Bourboule – at 6 km from Le Mont-Dore – has a swimming pool with sauna and hammam.
