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

This is an absolutely beautiful place with an easy walk as long as you are relatively fit, a concrete path all the way. The best bit of this place is popping into one of the refreshing pools for a swim and some sunbathing on the rocks. One of the highlights of my trip.

After arriving you pay 3€ to park your car then the rest is free to explore. A smooth uphill path leads you up through the gorge, though nothing stops you climbing down into the river. There are lots of rock pools which looked too good not to enjoy. We - like the locals - climbed down and enjoyed swimming in... More

The locals goes here for swimming and sunning, tourist come for see seeing the large gorges. You only pay parking (3 euro) and the rest is free. We did not do the long walk but just chose a rock to sit on and did some swimming and relaxing with the kids.

Set in spectacular scenery with rock pools to swim in. It gets very crowded in August so make sure you arrive in good time to grab a pool. There are many more than first appear but it involves a little walking. Take a picnic and chill for the day. Would recommend.

The gorges d'Heric is well worth a visit if you are in the area. On a hot summer's day, be prepared with a hat, plenty of water and suncream. Better still, set off early! The climb to the top is steep in places, but the whole route is made-up, so very navigable. Be prepared for beautiful scenery. In the summer... More

This is a paved sidewalk that follows alongside a dramatic gorge for several kilometers. You don't need any special footwear; you can stop anywhere and turn around to go back. The views down into the gorge are beautiful; the views up to the mountain peaks are magnificent. It was fun to see the families who had clambered down the rocks,... More

Lovely views all the way and really great to take a picnic and stop off by a small rock pool and have a small swim before lunch. Paved all the way and easy to walk and just hearing the water was a true gem. Not really that busy as high summer and nice clean area with nil rubbish around the... More

This is a wonderful walk, not too strenuous (we have pushed a buggy to the top) and with marvellous cool pools to rest beside or even dip in. To be avoided on very hot days only. There is a cafe at the top where one can be rewarded by a cool beer. Leave a couple of hours more than they... More
