Gorges Du Fier, Annecy Reviews
Taking a short walk in a full of running water gorge was never that easy and comfortable. Just next to Annecy there is the wonderful Gorges du Fier. A deep gorge curved in the rocks is beautifully set with bridges and balconies. A medieval tale about a knight and a page boy which is written on a sign by the trail, helps to transform the journey in the enchanted gorge into a magical dreamlike fantasy. Great for a three hours trip with the family.
This place took a little while to get to, but it was totally worth the drive. The drive was gorgeous through Countryside and some mountains. We were surprised by a view of a castle on a hill on our way to the Gorge. Once we got to the gorge it was easy to find free parking. Better once we got into the area we were able to get some tickets for cheap and start going through the gorge and seeing some amazing things. The entire place was green and gorgeous and it was enjoyable to watch. after we walk to the gorge we actually notice that there was another walking point we decided to go off the trail and down to the river. We got to put our feet in the cold water and just enjoy The View. I would recommend this place to anybody who is in the Annecy area.
Looks amazing. Not a huge amount of time to spend here but good for the entry price really. Gets quite busy on the board walks which are quite tight. Tie this trip in with the Chateau up the road and you'll have a great morning out.
we traveled it on September, with 4 years old, that walked all the way and back. the way and back took us 120 minutes with one long stop to eat. it is mostly flat road. we saw the train passing a couple of times during the path, which was excited for our kid. recommended.
Recommended by the tourist office in Annecy and thoroughly appreciated by us. It was a short, but well worthwhile experience. The information leaflet was comprehensive and useful.
