Nice walk along the canyon with great views. Not a very hard walk and it can be done in an hour. The view at the end is great. No trekking gear needed.

Very nice hike. The trail is very well cared for. It wasn't a difficult hike but it was all uphill on the way in. When you get to the top there is the most beautiful breeze! Great picture opportunities.

Don’t be put off by the slightly amateurish and tacky entrance and gift shop this gorge is spectacular and although the walk is uphill it should be achievable by anyone with average fitness. Well made path with sturdy hand rail and well engineered steps ....More

We visited the gorge using the train from Chamonix. It was a very hot day in August, so it was lovely to be in the shade of the gorge, although it was very busy. We took loads of pictures and enjoyed the board walks to...More
