GR 400

GR400 : with a length of 140 km the emblematic GR400 path around the Cantalien highlands unveils, bit  by bit, mountain ridges, mountains peaks and valleys. In the heart of the largest volcano in Europe, the Parc Naturel Régional des Volcans d'Auvergne et du Grand Site de France "Puy Mary-Volcan du Cantal", this itinerary of mid-range mountain levels rises from 750 to 1855m in height with the inherent difficulties expected with such an ascent.
It is possible to do the whole route over a period of 8 days or in parts : 1 o 2 days of which are spent in a winding descent. See the topographical guide "Volcan du Cantal - GR400" de la FFRandonnée.
