Very sharp bends and steep access road leads to parking area, from which you walk down to the gorge entrance to get your hard hat - choose your colour. As soon as you head into the narrow gorge the temperature and light drops and you...More

We were directed where to park, which was free and then had short walk to the entrance. Glad we had comfortable shoes, advisable to take some water as we walked briskly. Though as mentioned in previous reviews, it is repetitive at times, the gorge needs...More

This rates as probably the worst 10 Euros per person I have ever spent! It is not so much a trek through a gorge as a 3km walk along a metal gantry. For large parts of it your view is obscured by the gantry itself...More

A spectacular narrow gorge although it is a bit one dimensional. You just walk up the one path to the top, turn around and come back again. The nature of the landscape doesn't permit any variation. Lots of signs pointing out various flowers and fauna...More

In agreement with other reviews, the scenes became somewhat repetitive after a while- for an hour long walk. To be honest, there are only so many mossy rocks you can touch before they begin to lose their appeal. However what sets this place apart, is...More

The creek itself is not anything big. But the path it carved through the canyon is impressive. You walk the iron path, pass through several picturesque caverns, see few small waterfalls then the same way back. Admission 10 eur, was walkable in 1 hour there...More

We went to this attraction because we had heard a lot about it beforehand. It was a very hot day but walking through the gorge is cool although there is a gradual incline and some steep steps. We were a little surprised to be supplied...More

The walk in Gorges de la Fou was spectacular and fantastic! We were there with our 2 kids, 5 and 8 years old and they did the walk without problems.

It was a very hot day but the temperature in the gorge remains cool. It was a bit of a route march through on a narrow walkway and eventually it got a bit boring!

Went to this attraction on the recommendation of locals. Arrived at 10.30, one hour after it had opened and it was already very busy. Plenty of parking on site but soon fills up. At 10 euros for anyone over 10 years old we first thought...More

Just to confirm answer from Tina - you cant miss it about a couple of Km beyond Arles. Not too busy at the moment, so you should be OK. Just remember to wear something warm. Cheers D
