Across the
volcanic landscapes

Rich and varied landscapes await you along the way with peace and quiet guaranteed. From Velay to Meygal, the Way of Saint-Regis wends its way across a volcanic region. Le Puy-en-Velay, the starting point, also bears witness to volcanic activity with its rocky peaks. The landscapes of Mézenc are a land of silence and herds.

The trail then leads to the banks of the famous Lake Saint-Front. The unique outline of the Meygal region gives rise to some truly exceptional scenery. A basin of green meadows extends from the foot of the Grand Testavoyre, encircled by the big national forest. A large number of volcanic peaks are scattered across the panorama.
