Horseback Travel & Equestrian Tradition


Just three hours outside of Paris, the region is a paradise for outdoor lovers looking to get away from the hustle of the big cities. Riding in two of France's largest regional nature parks - the Auvergne Volcanoes Park and the Livradois-Forez Park - is a delightful riding experience and a well-deserved break for everyone. With legendary volcanoes, bucolic farmland, and quaint villages, there is no end of things to see and experience on your riding holiday in Auvergne or the Ardèche. Our top tip: don't forget to try out Auvergne's famous saucisson (dry sausage) and local cheese!


Entry formalities

The rules for travel to most countries in Europe will change if the UK leaves the European Union (EU) with no deal.

After 29 March 2019:

You should have 6 months left on your passport from your date of arrival. This applies to adult and child passports.

If you renewed a 10 year adult passport before it expired, extra months may have been added to your passport's expiry date. These extra months will not count.

The new rules will apply to passports issued by the UK, Gibraltar, Guernsey, the Isle of Man and Jersey.
