Incredible scenery, lovely swimming spots and really accessible

Really lovely afternoon spent swimming in the Rock pools and lounging reading books on the rocks. Beautiful spot to bring a picnic and just hang out.

The Gorge is popular with both climbers and walkers. There is a (relatively) easy tarmac path all the way to a café at the top taking around 2 hours and a simply spectacular circular walk ascending about 1,000m (1,300 doing the full circuit with a drop and re-ascent) taking an improbable line through the cliffs. The café in the car... More

I'm so glad that we got the opportunity to visit Gorges d'heric. We are a family of 4 (daughters were 6 and 8 at the time of visit) and we all had a wonderful time. We got there early in the morning (in July) and didn't find it to be too crowded. We stopped several times to swim and of... More

We had heard of the gorge and planned a walk up it and onto the hill tops above it. We didn't realise the gorge is a madly popular set of swimming pools in the river. The place got crazy busy in the afternoon. So if you plan to go try to get there early so that you get a parking... More

We read the reviews here and decided to visit, it's just as people describe it - you must visit! 3 euros for the car park. Take a picnic. Walk through the gorge. Swim, jump in the deep pools, and enjoy. We walked all the up the path to the top of the gorge - quite a walk so be prepared,... More

Most of the other reviewers have said it all really. I'm writing the review because it's one of the best places I have been to in a while for a great day out. It is fun for all the family, the combination of the outdoors , the fresh water pools and waterfalls almost as soon as you enter the gorge... More

This is s truly wild boulder-choked gorge in a stunning landscape which has a wide paved pathway of moderate gradient. The river flows over small waterfalls into clear pools and must be spectacular in flood. It can be cycled - MTBs (VTT en Francais) and it's not beyond the less fit. The area is well-maintained and the path keeps you... More

This is well worth the journey and the €3 parking charge. If Disney could build something like this in Orlando they would and make a fortune out of it as a water park. The path is well maintained and the place is immaculate. Just wanted to get my sandals off and have a paddle. Great spot

A marvellous walk made easily accessible because of the paved track leading all the way to the top. The scenery is stunning and the gorge makes one feel the power of nature. The towering rocks above and the river burbling away below. The gradient is not excessive so it is not too tiring for those not so young. At the... More
