I've done this excursion twice and I like taking visitors to see it. The passage around the gorges may be a little scary for people afraid of heights but it is safe although sometimes slippery. Entry cost is reasonable and there is information in multiple languages although some of the geology info is only in French. You can take toddlers... More

Got the #1 bus to Poisy from Annecy, then couldn't find the stop for the #12 bus to Lovagny. Therefore we missed the bus and the next one wasn't for another two hours so be careful if you're getting the bus there from Annecy. On the bright side we enjoyed a nice lunch in Poisy.

The title says it all: it is a nice little walk in a beautiful nature environment. The footbridges are nice but if you have the fear of heights, you may want to avoid that. Takes about 1h to go back and forth, there a picnic places and a little café in case you don't bring food.

at the entrance the nice cashier promised an hour tour all around. it took us ten minutes each way. there is no doubt that the site and sight ar breathtaking and the maintenance is good. walking above the gorge is an interesting yet short experiance.

Quite an amazing change of pace - a river gorge carved in rock with viewing from above on a suspension walkway cliffside in canyon. Loved checking it out. Did not disappoint. I think young and old were enjoying it. Supervision of kids required by site.

For all (locals and tourists alike), this is a "must do"! The price (at €5 per person), can be a bit steep for big families but, considering the maintenance the site needs and its beauty, it is more than worth it! The staff at the coffee/gift shop are extremely friendly and helpful. The site is not wheelchair accessible.

We were blown away by Gorges du Fier. It was just a few minutes drive from Annecy. It is an amazing geological phenomenon. The walkway along the rock was nerve - wracking to say the least, but it was worth it! I loved the legend of Diane as well, and the walk back was fun looking for the faces on... More

Fantastic walkway along the inside of the gorge. The walkway is attached to the wall of the gorge, not as scary as it sounds...it's quite secure. You probably need something of a head for heights. It's not suitable for wheelchairs or pushchairs and such. The walkway is mostly fairly flat; just the section at the other end of the gorge... More

At only 5 Euros per head this is very good value for money for what can be a 2-3 hour visit. It has a coffee and souvenier shop run by very helpful and friendly staff. It closes in mid October so check the opening dates before you go. If you walk up to the Chateau try taking the short cut... More

A secure walkway attached to the side of the canyon allowing you a close up view of what water is capable of, which for many would be impossible to see any other way. You are about half way down a deep canyon and the naturally carved rock is really beautiful. Even if you are not good with heights (which I... More
