  • Interesting visit with a wait time that may seem a bit long... Showroom and visit by train to a volcano crater, that is.

  • The volcano of Lemptegy is ideal for a family outing. The site is a volcano which has been exploited for its natural resources. Operations ended more than 10 years ago and the volcano has been kept in the State and tourism took over. The visit allows to enter the bowels of a volcano and learn how these have been created there thousands of years ago, thanks to high quality guides. The site is superb, and 2 animations (movie and explosive mine) also bring a nice value to visit.
