The Must-Dos

We are offering you a large range of beautiful souvenirs to get in the Massif du Sancy! This is our personal selection of what you can’t miss in our wonderful upland.
Nature, heritage, know-how, activities, art and gastronomy…
Have fun for few hours, few days or more!

What about you, what is your must-see activity?
This picnic with your family on the shores of Chambon Lake and sunburn that are going hand-in-hand?
The sunrise hike on Sancy’s crests that will blow your mind?
Or the timeless thermal baths visit in Le Mont-Dore where you can feel like a Russian Prince or Princess of the 19th century…
