    • It's entirely up to you to set your own pace so that you can enjoy the many charms of Kakuetta, a natural site with amenities, considered as one of the wildest, most legendary sites in Europe. When you go on this walk, you will take paths engineered out of the rock equipped with hand rails, steps and walkways with guard rails, so there's no need to be an experienced walker to make this visit. As it is not guided (so no need to book), you can also organize how you walk (how fast, how often you stop, whether or not you picnic), which all means that age is no obstacle for this excursion. The level of peacefulness is just right for taking time to relax. Recharge your batteries in this open air geological gallery.

      The Kakuetta Gorges are open every day from 15 March - 15 November, from 8.00 to nightfall (last admission times are dictated by the season and/or weather conditions).

    Nice walk through the gorge. Good place to visit on a hot day as the gorge stays nice and cool. Strongly recommend taking a picnic to eat by the river too. The route is a linear walk so the route back is along the same narrow path - which causes some congestion in places. It can also be slippy in places so good shoes recommend and there are numerous rocky and irregular parts which could cause difficulties for less sure footed visitors. Hardest part is first/last short but fairly steep climb from the lake below the restaurant over and into the gorge on wide woodland path. There are two carparks just before the entrance at the Cascades restaurant and limited roadside parking outside the entrance itself with a refreshments cabin. On arrival to the entrance, you first have to pay the entrance fees in the restaurant/shop and tickets are then collected at the cabin by the entrance gate. A short descent on a track then takes you to a picnic area by a lake and a cabin where you borrow a hardhat helmet for your visit (no extra charge) if you want one. Recommended visit. Especially on a hot day.

    Beautiful and awe inspiring. Difficult climbs but well worth the effort. There isn't a circuit, the path is a 'there and back' route, children love it.
