Stunning gorge to visit - only around 15mins drive from Annecy and with ample car parking. The gorge is fascinating and the information boards around showing historic flood levels were interesting. The water was at a very low level during our visit - I would love to visit when it is a bit higher. The walkway that has been built... More

The Gorges Du Fier is surrounded by a lovely forest, the walk was very easy, no climbing. The views are quite dramatic but since the water level was low, so was the excitement level, especially of the children. I would still recommend the trip.

Recommended by a friend and did not disappoint. Best visited in spring or later in autumn when water levels are high. Plenty of interpretation in a number of languages. Fantastic walkway through gorge. The place speaks for itself, the fanciful 'faces to be seen in the rocks' seemed a bit unnecessary.

To see the attraction you will go out on a walkway that is attached to the rock walls of the gorge. This walkway affords great views. You will walk to the end and then turn around and walk back. We loved it.

Great experience for nature lovers. Stunning views, easy and safe walk, for babies you can have back carriers for free. There is a small cafe (serving drinks and sandwiches) to relax after walk.

I highly recommend visiting the gorge. The walk is flat and easy and the views below are stunning. I found it very relaxing. I recommend going early morning - we arrived at 9.30am and met very few other people along the walkway. When we were leaving around 10.30am, the car park was full and there were a lot more people...

Walk along the deck for ~300-400m and then back on the same way. Nice views of the water and some rapids.

This is not far from Annecy. Free parking lot then a small cafe near the entrance, which has some picnic tables nearby, though probably best if you buy something from the cafe's limited range as well as taking your own food. Allow about 1 1/2 hrs for a visit. Amazing, elevated walkway along one side of the gorge and you... More
