If you're looking for a short non-strenuous excursion from Annecy, this will suit you. About 15 minutes by car from Annecy, the gorge is an interesting natural phenomenon. From the parking lot, you walk down some steps to the entrance where you pay 5 Euros per adult. The walk along the catwalk high above the gorge takes just 10-15 minutes one-way. If you don't like heights, you might want to pass as you're quite a bit above the bottom of the gorge.

There are public restrooms as well as a little cafe near the entrance.

We arrived in the early morning (parking was plentiful). We were the first visitors to arrive, 30 minutes after opening, so we had the place to ourselves.

It was nice to walk along the bridges and watch the massive amounts of water rush by. At the end of the walk you enter another area with information about the gorge (what to look for on the way back) and fairy-tales about the area.

It was a bit confusing on how to exit. We ended up returning the way we came. On the way back, notice the footprints (look in that direction and you will see faces, ect.). Quite a few people arrived as we walked back.

All in all, a great place to visit. We visited on our way to the Provence area.

An interesting place to visit for a couple of hours. The boardwalk clings to the side of the gorge and enables you to see the gorge very easily and effectively. Good facilities at the start of the gorge.

You need a car to get there, but the gorge is intimate and spectacular at the same time. There is a walking track along the edge of the gorge (ie, down in it but on walkways suspended in the air). It rained while we were there but that actually made it very enjoyable!! So glad we took the trouble to find it!

The gorge is very beautiful (not too long of a walk, but worth it). The path is well maintained, while there are several well documented explanatory snippets on the geo-history of the visible formations.
