If you're in this area it's definitely worth visiting this gorge. There is very narrow road, with a steep drop down to a river one side and over-hanging rocks on the other. Driving down it is like a ride at Alton Towers, but amazing. Traffic...More

We visited the gorge in October 2014. The road is quite winding but we never felt unsafe. Of course we were not there during the season so I'm sure it can be quite a different experience if there was a lot of vehicles. We parked...More

It is told that Galamus comes form Latin "gaudeamus", "let us enjoy". So yes, definitely, let us enjoy this gorgeous place. The road, starting at Cubiere sur Cinoble, will lead you snaking along the cliffs, hung up in the gorge, for an often windy experience....More

We coupled a tour of the gorge with a visit to the ruins at Peyrepertuse which turned out to make a wonderful day. How scary you find the road will depend on your previous road experiences. The roads are narrow and the drop off is...More

Even if driving trough the Gorges may be an interesting experience, we were suggested to leave the car in the parking lot at the entrance and walk. I think it was a good advice as we could both enjoy the amazing view :)

We drove this in a rented Fiat Panda on Sunday and a camper van, style with a bed over the drivers head, came through and passed us (on coming) too. However, I could not vouch for whether they made out to the end. One vw... More
