We were staying at Lac Leman, and had already found this place to visit before we left home. It looked very interesting on the internet, and we were not disappointed with our visit.
We arrived, and parked up in the reasonably sized car park. There was a fair walk to the entrance to the Gorge, but there are lovely views along the path to the main building.
It was scorching hot when we visited, and pushing two children in a pushchair was hard work in the heat. When we came to order our tickets, it became apparent that we couldn't just carry our one year old through the walkways. They were kind enough to provide us with a sturdy back carrier for our baby. My Wife chose to carry him, which she later regretted, as he's a fair old lump, and the weather was very humid that day.
Anyway the walkways were an engineering marvel, with paths hanging out over the Gorge. We've never experienced anything like it before, it was genuinely a great experience. The water that had carved the Gorge rushed beneath us, with the sound reverberating up the rock faces.
After passing through the Gorge, the paths continue through further rock formations. My Wife by this point was at the point of exhaustion, so we decided to head back to the car.
France is full of marvellous sights, and it has to be said that we have nothing like this in the UK.
Certainly worth the drive, and I would highly recommend it.
