Unique natural wonder-Worth the effort to get there

Unique natural wonder! Amazing footbridge to traverse the gorge area. The historical timeline showing how high the water has risen is amazing!!

We stopped by on our taxi ride from Geneva to Annecy to see the Gorges du Fier. It was very pretty to see from the bridge crossing from side to side. Unfortunately we did not walk or hike any of this, but it was definitely worth seeing.

Didn't have a car so we took the bus. From Annecy Take Bus #1 Poisy College. Get off Lovagny. From there we had to walk about 30 minutes (followed the signs and ask for direction "Ou est Gorges du Fière?" - "Where is Gorgees du fiere?") It's worth the walk as even the area has some good French country feel... More

Beautiful canyon, spectacular views, great pictures. We've been there on a very hot day, but in there it was cool and refreshing. It's easy to access with a car, but we took a bus from Annecy to the nearest village, and then walked the Gorges (one hour). There's a local bus, but it has a specific schedule with long breaks....

Beautiful views into the gorge with well managed pathways. Fast paced return walk would take an hour. We enjoyed the views and made it a couple of hours. Parking was easy, and good information was provided at the entrance kiosk. Basic snacks and drinks available.

We stopped in here on our way to Annecy. We parked in the lower lot and walked up to the entrance, paid our fee and began a 90 minute journey through a fantastic stretch of river carved canyon. You walk on a suspend platform through the Gorge, pausing to take a look at the high water marker. At the exit... More

This is a good spot to get out and do a little walking. The walk along the gorge is similar to a catwalk and felt very safe, even though it was up high. There are reviews that indicated if you don't like heights, it's not for you, but I didn't find that at all. Another quiet little gem in this... More

Beautiful place to visit when in Annecy! If you don't like heights, it might not be for you, however the walkway is sturdy, you can't climb over the barrier and the sights are well worth it! Beware - the path does become more slippery towards the end, but even if you just stay to the main path, the view is... More

The gorge of the river Fier is only 10km west of the beautiful French alpine town of Annecy. It is not to be missed, but those afraid of heights may find the walk through the gorge on an elevated cantilevered walkway a little threatening. The drive there is lovely, through lush, green farmland, with a few houses dotted along the... More
