Gorges Du Fier Reviews & Ratings
Amazig natural phenomenon where the water from the region round Lake Annecy flows through to the River Rhone through a narrow crack in the rocks that in extreme conditions reaches up to 27 metres deep. Suspended walkway enables you to walk through the gorge and see the amazing shapes sculpted by the water.
This was pretty neat and very close to town, but I have been to many slot canyons in the American Southwest, so I was a bit disappointed with all of the tourist buildup around the place. I really wanted to hike through the gorges myself, but this is not possible. And some of the signage was interesting, but somewhat excessive. That said, this is a very beautiful place, accessible to all, and I'm very glad I went. But don't expect a remote slot canyon in the wild.....
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.
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 had a nicd walk along the gorge here. Quite a short walk though but the scene was awesome. If you are around here, this place might be worth to visit.
