Somewhere you need to experience to really appreciate . My daughter was the driver and fortunately a very good one. The road through the gorges is very twisting with large overhangs of rock. For passengers the view of the drop down to the river is...More

We drove through the gorge after a visit to nearby chateau Queribus. The single alternate traffic system was in place and worked really well as there are few places wide enough for traffic to pass. The views up and down the gorge were impressive as...More

We were taken down this gorge 'road' by a 'local' - who had a grin on his face the whole distance. It is about 2 miles of literally cliff-hanging road, with no passing places - at least in summer they do arrange for one-way-traffic, which...More

Nice scenic ride with interesting cave-church at the end. We stopped few times during the ride, and walked to admire the view. There are few places to do so along the way. One-direction regulations are no longer the case. Worth the extra driving time to...More

If you want to spend some time away from rutin and feel existence of moment, hermitage chapel is worth a visit. The cliffs and the river is amazing not just to see, but to go for hike along the river.

An amazing drive along a corniche road that is so narrow in places that two cars could not possibly pass. The cliffs tower above you and the river is mostly out of sight far below, heard but not seen. The hermitage chapel is worth a...More

We drove through the Galamus Gorge after visiting Queribus and Peyrepertuse castles. The gorge is traffic light controlled as there is only room for cars going one way at a time. The views are stunning for passengers but you can't stop for the driver to...More

Free and yet so well tended. It's one way alternating traffic when driving through the gorges. That is most definitely a good thing as the over hanging rocks and narrow road would making passing an on coming vehicle a bit trick to say the least!...More

We drove this in a rented Fiat Panda on Sunday and a camper van, style with a bed over the drivers head, came through and passed us (on coming) too. However, I could not vouch for whether they made out to the end. One vw... More
