... which is easily accessible by a little train. It gets very busy and Puy Mary might be better for those with more energy.

The train trip was spectacular with such awesome views of the surroundings, unfortunately due to cloud coming in and rain we couldn’t hike down but was still an exceptional experience that I would recommend

Quite a nice hike up to the Puy-de-Dome, but the view from the top is quite a reward... unless like us we arrive in the middle of the clouds, with freezing drizzle rain. After the clouds clear up, the view is great though.

A dead volcano converted to an observatory and hosting a telecommunications tower is a scenic beauty of Clermont. People can either trek to the top or take the train from the foot hill and both of them are equally splendid. For Clermont, this is what...More

You can enjoy the climb and see the wonderful view by a clear weather but be careful with the snow! There might be quite a lot of it ! it must be amazing to see the white coat but choose a day without wind
