Carved into the towering cliffs by the Gornervispe River over thousands of years, Gorner Gorge offers a vivid insight into the omnipotence of nature. First opened for tourists in 1886-87, the gorge features two sections--the lower path with secured wooden bridges and galleries and the more challenging upper stretch to be crossed with the assistance of a mountain guide.

  • Would highly recommend this activity for a non ski day. It was an incredible experiecne to see the gorge in the winter and even more so to zip line through it!

  • This is a great afternoon hike and worth doing. You get a perspective that you otherwise miss just being on top of the mountains. Bring a camera, there are lots of photo opportunities.
