Mixed feelings about this. For a lot of people it will seem expensive at 10 Euro pp and it is just a steady walk on a metal walkway, but it does provide access to a canyon walk for some people who would otherwise struggle in...More

I visited with my two daughters, 5 and 8. It’s well organised, with good amenities at the entrance including places to eat and drink. It was a particularly warm day so it was really lovely for the kids to be able to enjoy the walk...More

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

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

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
