We were amazed what nature can do to creat it throughout centuries. I think it was a right season time to visit it (in October) as you can really enjoy the walk without crowded by tourists. Highly recommended! It's very special.

An exciting tour through a narrow gorge of a mighty river. Do it with time. Take advantage of every minute and step.

Easy walk (no hiking boots needed) on wood planks, a few areas of steps. About 40 minutes one way (taking pictures and embracing the beauty) and 25 minutes back. Lovely way to spend the morning from interlaken.

Noisy fast flowing river, easy walk steep steps at the end. A little slippery in places due to humidity. Excellent!

The walk is 1 km in length, passing through the gorge carved by the Aare River. You are in a narrow canyon walking much of the time on narrow catwalks suspended on the rocky cliff face. At its narrowest point, the gorge is only 1...More
