The Chaîne des Puys seen from above!
Vulcania offers you a view from above aboard the attraction “Le Ballon des Puys”!
One of a kind in Auvergne, this balloon offers an exceptional panoramic view of the Chaîne des Puys volcanoes.
At more 100 metres above the ground, it’s the best observation post to understand this landscape shaped by volcanic activity and perhaps soon to be classified as a UNESCO world heritage site!
