The scenery was certainly dramatic and worth seeing. We walked round the gorge in about an hour before having lunch at the little restaurant which was reasonably priced. There was information in different languages which was useful too.

Definitely worth a visit. Nature at its finest. Relatively easy walking although expect some minor climbing. There is a small cafe for food and drink at the entrance, as well as picnic tables if you bring your own food.

A nice walk near annecy. The river itself is beautiful, and walking on the bridge above it is amazing. Try to walk down to river

Really beautiful to walk along the canyon. I felt the path was secure despite being along the walls. A must visit if you are in Annecy. Spent there a couple of hours (you can do that even in less then 1 hour if you really want to go fast). There was a long queue though at around 3:30 pm. There... More

Whilst staying in Annecy we rented a car for the day to do this trip and it was well worth it. When you are in the gorge with the water roaring, it is somehow very peaceful. You just stand there taking it all in. A wonderful half day trip from Annecy. Afterwards we just drove around the French countryside a... More

I went with little expectations given some TripAdvisor Reviews. However it is Spectacular. It cost my family of 5 (3 small children) €14 but the effort and engineering that has gone into the platforms/ displays/ fencing more than justifies the price. Even the children were amazed. We spent maybe an hour walking down the gorge and then less time back.... More

If you are in the Annecy area this place is definitely worth a visit. It's reasonably entry cost, think it cost about €17 for 4 of us. It's hard to imagine how old the gorge is, quite fascinating really! It was quite busy when we went but it was August so we're expecting it. The path is narrow so it's... More

We were a little underwhelmed by this place. The boardwalk on the cliff edge gave an interesting perspective of the gorge and the river below but it wasn't exactly spectacular. The board walk ends with a trail down to see some rock formations. Worth a trip if you have an hour to spare but not worth spending too much time... More

A great place to visit. The walkway goes quite a distance through the gorge and there is plenty to see. There are lots of information boards to read and the trail carries on beyond the gorge into a few short walks. It does get a bit narrow in places but adds to the sense of adventure. The only thing that... More

This river gorge has a walkway clinging to the rock wall allowing visitors to view the fascinating erosion patterns. Additional areas have information about the geology and legends of the area.
