Exciting break and a breath of fresh air in Clermont-Ferrand

With its magnificent cathedral, fascinating historic district around the Place de la Victoire, very lively Rue des Gras, and the Aventure Michelin, a museum dedicated to the world-famous brand, Clermont-Ferrand has no shortage of attractions. With the Hotel Eklo as your base, you can easily enjoy the whole region for a break in the heart of nature...


Amidst the Auvergne Volcanoes

Located on a plateau in the centre of the Chaîne des Puys, Clermont-Ferrand is the ideal starting point for discovering the area’s geological marvels. You can reach the summit of the Puy de Dôme volcanic lava dome without effort thanks to the panoramic rack railway. From there you can enjoy a 360° view of this awe-inspiring landscape. For hiking and mountain biking enthusiasts, many routes run through the region and allow you to discover its diverse facets. For example, you can follow the Limagne fault, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, or reach the astonishing Grottes du Sarcoui, the almost white lava of which was used in Merovingian times for making sarcophagi.


Fresh air and thrills

Go from total relaxation in the thermal baths of Royat, a few minutes from Clermont-Ferrand, to an invigorating swim at the water leisure areas of Lac Chambon and Iloa. Many outdoor activities await you. You might also want to explore the Allier by canoe. It’s an original way to discover the most beautiful panoramas of the region. Finally, the Puy de Dôme is the take-off point for paragliding and microlight flights. Soar over this fabulous landscape! Thanks to the family rooms of the Hotel Eklo Clermont-Ferrand, you and your family can enjoy a dynamic, fun-filled and green holiday in the heart of Auvergne.
