How to get to Clermont Ferrand
For international travelers, the easiest way to reach Clermont Ferrand is to fly directly to Clermont Ferrand’s airport from Paris; or fly to the nearby Lion airport, and from there take any of the buses to Clermont Ferrand (about a 1.5h ride). For participants coming from France or neighboring countries, we recommend considering rail transportation as a more climate friendly transportation option.
