The Auvergne is one of France's best kept secrets for winter holiday destinations. The area is ideal for exploring on cross country skis or snowshoes. The volcanic region has many glacial lakes and craters. One of the oldest ski resorts in France is located here - Le Mont Dore which is closely linked with 2 very different ski villages, Chastereix and Super Besse. For something very different, why not give dog-sledging a go at Chastereix?
