The August tours in the Massif Central


The August 15th tour.



After the July tour which had 10 vehicles from the UK, Norway and Belgium, the August 15th tour was a very small one, with only 2 vehicles, both from the UK.


Our company policy is that we will never cancel a tour because of small numbers as we realise that people's holidays are very important to them.


Mick and Joelle came in their Discovery II, and John and Enid came in their Toyota Land Cruiser Amazon, which was the largest vehicle we have had on a Massif tour, and which was an extremely tight fit on some of the narrower lanes.


Both vehicles coped very well on the difficult lanes in the area, and in the dry and dusty conditions the road tyres on the Disco and All Terrains on the Land Cruiser were more than adequate.


On the first day we did 2 local circuits near to the hotel, returning for lunch, and early afternoon we watched the annual raft race on the River Allier before the second circuit.



On the second day we did 2 more circuits of the many and varied lanes and tracks, climbing up the steep sided valley onto the high plains above, returning for lunch at the hotel.


These were quite narrow tracks, and the Toyota had to squeeze through between the trees and the rocks, but with some guidance coped very well considering its width.


During the afternoon there were some steep climbs, some over lose rocky tracks, and some climbing up some rock surfaces, rather like a "mini Moab" in places.
