The five pelean volcanoes are in the shape of domes and of the same family as the famous Gerbier de Jonc. Here are their names : the Montfol, the Sépoux, the Séponet, the Taupernas and the Lauzière.
A Peléan eruption is extrusive meaning it is caused by viscous, gas-poor magma which builds domes. Depending on the lava's viscosity, the domes can take on different shapes.
Période d'ouvertureAll year round.

You can also walk the path unaccompanied: past the geographical and authentic sources, follow the blue dots on the path that starts in front of the Gerbier de Jonc restaurant, left of the road that comes from the Gerbier de Jonc esplanade.
