Gorges du Fier, Annecy

Breath in the savage beauty of the Gorges du Fier from walkways built 24 m (79 ft) above the burbling waters. Read the signs you see along the path, as the information will reveal a surprise. Also stop in the little room at the end to see film footage that shows the changes in water level. You'll be glad the water is low as you cross the wooden bridge and feel the spray sprinkle on your face.

  • I did two times these beautiful gorges! The first a couple of years ago, and the second in mid-September. This time, my husband would not go with me, because he now had bouts of Vertigo! I must say that the ride is impressive, but beautiful. Do and redo for the brave!

  • I've got the shakes. The first 3 minutes a bit apprehensive but the beauty of the site and the safety of the venue quickly forgot me this detail! Take the time to look at everything, rock, colors, stop on the "not"drawn on the ground to see "the dragon head" "monkeys" etc... a wee hours just to discover this place but obviously if possible during off-peak hours for avoided e Suspender crowd on gateways.

  • This is a place that is friendly and pleasant to visit. The visit is not long and can be fun to do with kids. The price is not very high but corresponds to the visit.

  • Nice place for a visit when in the area or when travelling through. Combine it with a trip to the old castle like chateau 500m next to it because it doesnt take very long to finish this, but it was fun. Great sights, nice experience and not that expensive. Can also get a drink here.
  • Impressive natural river gorge. €5.30 adult, €3 for child to 15. Small restaurant & gift store. Adequate English spoken. Takes 90 to 120 minutes. Not recommended for those who have vertigo, or are very unfit or obese. Courtesy and cooperation required for passing in narrow sections. Some steps are slippy.
  • Beautiful short hike, very good for children. After it's possible to continue to the castle on the hill through the woods.
  • We cycled from Annecy and had a nice time wandering around Les gorges. The views are great and there are also areas which teach you about the various rock formations you come across.
  • It's a great place to go with your friends for a fun day out
