Nobody told us about the flies so I thought I had better tell you. We went up today on the cable car, great views, a sunny day. Arrived at the top and had to walk to the summit through this biblical plague of little flies,...More

Today we climbed this beautiful mountain and it was well worth it! The views were breathtaking and the air so fresh. It was very busy but not so busy that you felt you were always near people. Take a picnic with you to eat at...More

Went on the reopening day on 1st May. Once at the top we were told not to go any further as the snow was too unstable. The fog was so thick we couldn't see a meter away. We had spent 5 minutes there when the...More

Amazing views from the top, but we enjoyed our hike up more. Very scenic, wildflowers everywhere - we also spotted some marmots! Still some snow patches around. There was a herd of cows that was very photogenic, and we got to appreciate the scale of...More

We visited in summer; the views are outstanding and the precipitous valleys take the breath away. Those would would like a little more of a walk than the 20-30 minutes to the top of Puy de Sancy might be interested in the circular route that...More

The cable car is a great ride, but you can walk up and down by different routes, all well signposted. The 800 + wooden steps to the summit from the cable car are worth it for the view.
