The volcano road (la route du volcan)



The volcano road (la route du volcan) starts in Bourg Murat village and is about 30km long, (about 20 km are tarred). It is the only access to the volcano by car. It is also one of the most beautiful picnic spots of the island.
On this road, you will pass from tropical and farming landscapes to a mineral universe.
The whole road is easily drivable and you will enjoy unforgettable sights (like over the Rivière des remparts).
The road stops at the "Pas de Bellecombe" (2311m), which is a belvedere overlooking the craters.
