Gîte du volcan



At the Gîte du Volcan, hikers can spend the night only 600 meters from the entrance to the volcano crater. Hikers can leave very early to climb to the top of the volcano and take advance of the clement morning weather (the weather can be very changeable in the morning). Owned and run by the Picard family for several generations, this is the only accommodation in the area. Hikers can receive useful advice and information from the owners who live permanently on the site.
