It was 5,5 euro for a 40-50 minute walk there and back. Not worth the money. If you from a country known for it's scenery this walk will be a little bit of a let down. The gorge is interesting and the bridge is very cool, but it looks much better in the pictures. There is a fair bit of... More

Tucked away less than 20km from Annecy are the Gorges du Fier, well worth a visit if you'd like a change from town life or water-based activities. The whole site has been really nicely planned and prepared, with a gentle, short walk from the large, free car park to the ticket booth. After that it's a few hundred metres of... More

I was hopping for more after reading reviews and was a bit disappointed. The first 300m on the high bridge over the canyon were nice. Nice view on the canyon and good hide from the sun. When the bridge ends, the trail leaves the canyon and goes above it ...nothing intresting, I would skip this part. The way back is... More

The "Gorges" are very beautiful. If you are in the region don't miss them. It is extraordinary to see what nature can create. Be ther in the morning and then have lunch just outside the Gorges in the "Auberge du bon Refuge".

We had a beautiful day to hike this gorge. The walkway is cantilevered from the rock walls over the gorge so that you are actually walking out over the water. It made one of my friends really nervous - but I loved it and was a great experience!

The Gorges du fier is a natural canyon or ravine carved out by the river Fier over millennia. But it isn't just a deep line cut through some rocks - it has carved its way downwards in a tortuous fashion producing breathtaking features in the limestone rocks. A walkway has been build onto one of the canyon walls allowing visitors... More

The walk through the gorge was amazing and impressive, but we wanted to explore further up and down the river, and read and hear more. The AV display room was a little disappointing in the way in which it was done. Yes, it was worth the visit, but we would have liked to have seen and done more! A large... More

Our 7 and 9 year olds loved this gorges, the boardwalks with freaky enough to entice them - and scary enough for their mother I'm still not sure what to think - and there were only a few signs.... all the signs were in French except the legend of the gorges which was pretty cool. it's interesting and beautiful enough...

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.
