Uitgebreide wandelgids van de Auvergne: goede beschrijvingen, veel keuze, kaarten wat minder goed.

This handy guidebook offers the finest day walks in five different areas of the Auvergne, an often-forgotten region in central France perfect for accessible day walking in a unique and spectacular landscape. Towns such as Vichy, Clermont-Ferrand and Puy-en-Velay also offer delightful places to base yourself for that perfect walking holiday. The ridges, rocky peaks and verdant valleys of the Cantal supervolcano dominate south-western Auvergne. The centre of the region hosts the unique chain of 'puys' with their pudding bowl forms and the pristine crater lakes of the Sancy massif. In the north, the Montagne Bourbonnaise preserves a pastoral way of life which is quintessentially French while the Haute Loire's rivers and medieval abbeys reward those venturing further off the beaten track. Notes on the geology and history of points of interest passed en route help you to get the most out of your explorations. The 42 routes described range from easy to challenging and between 5 and 20km. All are illustrated with clear, original sketch maps and colour photographs and all the information you need to plan your trip is included, including a useful walker's glossary.


An ancient volcanic landscape formed over 70,000 years ago, the Auvergne offers a wealth of accessible walking against a backdrop of spectacular mountain scenery.
The Auvergne region rises out of the Massif Central and spans the area from the spa towns of Vichy and Clermont-Ferrand to the historic Le Puy-en-Velay. The landscape bears witness to the seismic volcanic eruptions of bygone ages, the result of which is that the area boasts mountainous terrain set alongside a wealth of more gentle ground, all of which is open to exploration and discovery.
The majority of the terrain offers a variety of walking well within the scope of those accustomed to hiking in Britain. The accessible height (from 1,000m to 1,900m) of the volcanic peaks in the Cantal and Monts Dore means there are interesting objectives for those seeking both easy and challenging excursions into the mountains.
The walks are grouped around five areas, as follows:
The Cantal offers steep and dramatic peaks, but these are relatively easy to achieve – a circular route to the summit and back can take just a little under three hours.
The Chaîne des Puys (Monts Dômes) is home to the very distinctive dome-shaped mountains, the highest of which (Puy de Dôme) is just 1,465m. For a city base, Clermont-Ferrand is an ideal choice, while the village of Orcival offers a quieter option.
The Monts Dore has topography that favours multi-peak ridge crest link-ups, and its location means that it can be explored from the same bases as suggested for the Chaîne des Puys.
The Haute-Loire offers gentle hiking options, with many cultural and historical sites to visit en route.
The Montagne Bourbonnaise is likewise an area for mild strolls of only a couple of hours and with little ascent – a perfect destination to escape from a hectic 21st-century lifestyle.
