Gorges du Fier, Annecy

(4.4/5 based on 850+ reviews on the web)
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. Make Gorges du Fier part of your personalized Annecy itinerary using our Annecy itinerary planner.

  • A nice walk of an hour and a half on bridges with a bird's-eye view of the Gorge. Very nice and pleasant.

  • Amazing on passages in overhanging planks Gorge, view spectacular but not reserved to those who have Vertigo. The water loudly sneaks among the rocks causing some drizzle. Really superb

  • Marvel at a few km d Annecy. You will discover floods throughout the years and be impressed by the views through the impressive flow of water. The panorama worth visiting and gateways are very well designed. To do at least once you won't regret.

  • Good place to spend a few hours. Nicely laid out. Look out for the faces on the rock!
  • Amazing very narrow and complexly eroded gorge. More like a cave river with open roof. You traverse about 500m (and back same way) along a slightly dilapidated walkway 20m above the "normal" river level (and still 20m below the top), then some river bank around more crazy river erosion, then back same way. The river's been known to flood much deeper than the walkway during spring melt, and there are some bad videos and photos of this, plus some boards with ecosystem info and cute local fairytales, but the highlight is the gorge itself.
  • Very nice place with a path/bridge inside the gorge above the Fier river. Really worth a visit.
  • Walking past the canyon with the river streaming down your feet... Priceless experience !!!
  • A very nice detour worth a short visit to see an example of how nature can produce spectacular things.
