Outstanding Walk through the Gorges

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

We visited the place after seeinng it here on trip advisor. it was well worth the visit. A nice walk from the car park to the site. It was nice how they tried to acomadate different languges on the info bords around the site. The gift shop was fairly priced too

The walk through Gorges du Fier is spectacular. The rock features are fantastic and the peace of the are is great. The only sound to be heard is the rushing of water. It is a easy walk on elevated walkways. Should not be a problem for those with limited mobility. There is a small cafe at the entrance which offers... More

We stopped by on our taxi ride from Geneva to Annecy to see the Gorges du Fier. It was very pretty to see from the bridge crossing from side to side. Unfortunately we did not walk or hike any of this, but it was definitely worth seeing.

Unique natural wonder! Amazing footbridge to traverse the gorge area. The historical timeline showing how high the water has risen is amazing!!

Didn't have a car so we took the bus. From Annecy Take Bus #1 Poisy College. Get off Lovagny. From there we had to walk about 30 minutes (followed the signs and ask for direction "Ou est Gorges du Fière?" - "Where is Gorgees du fiere?") It's worth the walk as even the area has some good French country feel... More

Beautiful canyon, spectacular views, great pictures. We've been there on a very hot day, but in there it was cool and refreshing. It's easy to access with a car, but we took a bus from Annecy to the nearest village, and then walked the Gorges (one hour). There's a local bus, but it has a specific schedule with long breaks....
