A world of sensations and emotions.
Vulcania has been awarded the “Tourism and Disability” label for visitors with cognitive impairments, and offers a range of adapted services to make your visit as comfortable as possible.
Vulcania’s attractions offer a wide range of sensations and emotions, and are particularly suited to visitors with mental disabilities. Nevertheless, certain images may offend the sensibilities of some visitors. To help you prepare for your visit, we recommend that you contact us by e-mail.
At the “Cafétéria des Puys”, dishes are presented in the form of photos and staff can help carry the tray if required.
Complement your visit with a guided tour or workshop-visit “Volcanoes from top to bottom” (for groups of 5 or more people with disabilities):
