See what authentic really means in Auvergne!

Climb to the top of volcanoes and tear down the pistes at Super-Besse. Visit all the viaducts on the Massif Central: Garabit, Chavanon, Barajol. Enjoy the Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival, and the one for street theatre in Aurillac.

Then learn traditional Limousin dance, the “drunkard’s step”, and the art of cutlery in Thiers. Make sure to bring back some Puy lentils and fresh tomme cheese from Aubrac, hearty fare for those cold winter nights.
