This is a very unique site and for 5 Euros is well worth the trip. The Gorges are quite spectacular and the walkway along them is a wonder of engineering, especially given when it was done.

The walk on the suspended footbridge, 25 meters above the river, was awesome. We arrived first thing in the morning, right when they opened, so there was no other tourists around.

Very beautiful place and a pleasant walk, but it was a bit of a short walking path given that you have to pay to get in there. Not a very physically demanding experience, so it is senior-friendly and kid-friendly.

We were visiting Annecy and decided to take a side trip to the Gorges du Fier. Its about 8 miles away on well marked road signs through pleasant rolling countryside. We had no trouble finding it until the very end. There isn't any signage at the parking lot; all you see are lots of cars and you figure "Must be... More

The Gorges du Fier was beautiful. I was a little skeptical of spending money to see nature when the whole area around Annecy is gorgeous but I was really glad that we visited the Gorge. It was impressive to see the water cascading below and the drive to the Gorge was lovely. The view of the Chateau from the road... More

This is our second visit to this attraction. The cost is modest. All ages of visitors will enjoy it. The views and sound of the water in the gorge are fabulous.

Breath taking. Could still see high water mark from flood of May 1st some 2 meters above walkway. They did good job of repairs in very quick time. As you leave make sure you visit room at side of exit showing photos of previous floods. Could be slippery so wear proper shoes/boots. Cannot imagine a pushchair doing this. Water levels... More
