In November access to the river is limited. However, a well constructed path leads around the major sights of the gorge and with complete absence of other visitors was a pleasure.

The park was closed and the river was high. We are from Alaska so did not expect a wilderness adventure. But is is beautiful agrarian countryside and worth a visit.

I’ll preface this with saying we were a bit put off by an earlier stop further up the river where there had obviously been a pollution event leaving hundreds of dead fish in the water. I’m not surprised our hotel owner warned us against swimming...More

It is quite easy to get to by car. the car park we parked our car is located at the entrance of the national reserve, the gorge is 150m away from there. Our major intention was the gorge itself so we skipped the national reserve....More

In 2017 it was 3€ for the public entrance, and 13€ for the elevator entrance (in this case there is also a little walk along the park). Anyway at the end you will arrive at the same point.

it would be much colder for sure and have no ide if itll be open for tourist as its an enclosed closure. maybe cause of lack of tourists it would not be open try to phone or e mail before to avoid dissapointment.
