Nice short visit

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

Nice toi see, I think it will be better in spring, with more water, but it's a nice and easy trip to see nature.

The visit comprises a wooden walkway suspended above the river Fier as it cuts a narrow gorge through a limestone ridge. When we visited, in August, the river was at about its lowest level, so the walkway was about 24 m above the water. It is wide enough for people to pass for much of its length, and has a... More

Amazing walk 25 metres above the Fier river which was not in full flow when we were there. 5.50 euros for an adult ticket and you'll need about an hour to walk it as you come back the same way. It's quite narrow in parts but the river below you is magnificent plus the rock formations that have formed. The... More

This is well worth a visit. About 1/2 hour's drive from Annecy. The technology in fixing the wooden path to the side of the gorge is amazing, considering it's over 100 years old! Great views. Nice café by the entrance: lunches, drinks & ice-creams.

Took just over hour from parking to returning back to car. Nice easy walk along gorge but not if you don't have a head for heights! OK value for money but will not return again.

This is a nice route to do with children as it includes nature along with a short but exciting walk for them. The walk inside the gorge on the secure bridges is really fun. The water bellow is great to watch. We were hoping to see more water in the gorge.

Very impressive natural formations, carved by a rapidly flowing small river, the Fier. Securely fenced catwalks offer a safe way to look at the marvels sculpted by the water. At the end of the catwalks, you can continue with an amusing and informative foot path tour.
