A lovely gorge in a pretty forest setting. Our guide explained the history in both French and English and was very friendly. The tour takes about 40 minutes. There are lots of steps going down/up so you need to be quite mobile.

This is absolutely amasing. The price is 6€ for adults, is accessible from Thonon/Evian in about 25min driving along la Dranse (river in celtic) the route des grandes alpes.

Realy worth the visit. Beautiful gorge, with impressive rock formations. The guides are also really good.

Quite a breath taking trip down into pre-history seeing this natural bridge over the River. When a glacier melted it gouged out an amazingly sculptured scene. Really quite spectacular, but it comes at a cost!!! There is a very steep descent down into the gorge, with many steps to climb down, making it quite difficult for elderly people. Worth a... More

On the main road running from Thonon to Morzine, this is a fantastic gorge which is really worth a visit. There are a lot of steps (approx 375 up, and many down also), and I would not recommend it if you are very claustrophobic or scared of heights, as some of the drops and passages are quite narrow. That aside,... More

This was a beautiful place to visit, we came by it on the map and decided to take a look. We're so pleased we did as it was worth every euro. There are lots of steps before you get down to the Gorge itself, they are shallow at this point with lots of places to stop and sit if you... More

We began at the roadside, with a mixed nationalityt group (though I think we were the only two non French speakers). The guide tried to look for Chamois on the cliff face opposite (?), Then we all started the long descent down into the valley, down through some very pleasant and interesting woodlands, with bilingual explananation displays as we went...

A free bus from Les Gets brought us to this attraction. A one hour guided tour took us down to the gorge, along walkways with impressive rock formations. I enjoyed it, but feel they should have warned people that the walk down was very steep as was the return journey - not for the unfit!

While visiting the eagle park in Sciez, I came across a brochure for this gorge located up in the mountains. I had not heard of it before but apparently it is one of the top ten tourist attractions in the Haute Savoie with over 50,000 visitors every summer. It is about 58 km from Geneva or an hours drive. You... More

We visited on an amazingly hot day which made the coolness of the gorge very welcome. Its not a place for people with mobility problems as you park the car by the road near the visitor centre and then have one heck of a walk steeply down a zig-zag path to the gorge entrance and more difficult still, a steep...
