Activities for every season

Perhaps you’d prefer to go hiking on the puy Mary, a “Grand Site de France” or hurtle down the ski slopes at the resort of Le Lioran?
Here, the hills, mountains, lakes and rivers invite you to try your hand at a huge selection of activities including hiking, fishing, horse riding, cycling, downhill and cross-country skiing are the foundation of Cantal Tourism.

Whether in summer or winter time, each season has its own surprises and sensations in store, and always offers a generous, breathtaking landscape with marvellously invigorating pure air. In Cantal, tourism has more to offer then just nature and sports activities, there are also plenty for the history and gastronomy fans.

Historical heritage

The local architectural heritage will certainly surprise you, with just one example being the Garabit Viaduct, built by the legendary Gustave Eiffel, in addition to the quality and variety of the castles of Cantal.

Relaxation and gastronomy

In the evening, it's never too late to enjoy a moment of relaxation and well-being at the Chaudes-Aigues recreational spa centre or to meet up as a family in the friendly setting of a fine restaurant, where they will be delighted to share with you our delicious meat (ah! Salers!) and local cheeses (including Cantal, Salers and Carré d’Aurillac, etc).


Bringing you a chance to experience pure nature, high-quality terroir produce and friendly local inhabitants, the Pays d’Aurillac, la Châtaigneraie, the massif Cantalien, Salers, or Saint-Flour tourist offices look forward to welcoming you and take great pleasure in helping you to appreciate your stay in the Auvergne's Cantal area.
