Beautiful place for a relaxing family walk, suitable also for children. Delicious 🍓🍓🍓 to pick along the way and 🐴🐴🐴 can be hired for a ride. The waterfall and the landscape are breathtaking, and the place is so peaceful even when it's crowded. Lovely!

Magnificent and beautiful views. The only place I’ve been which lifted all the stress away with its indefinite beauty. Highly recommend if you love a good walk around the mountains.

This place stretches anyone’s command of English superlatives; and the terribly hackneyed phrase of ‘I haven’t got the words’ obviously doesn’t work in a TA review! So, I will find words …. The Cirque du Gavarnie is the Most Amazing Place you Will EVER see....More

My husband and I hiked to the falls and let me just say... AMAZING. You hike about an hour in and there is a hotel restaurant nestled in between the mountain peaks. We had lunch there and then continued up to the falls. Just beautiful.....More

A beautiful place to go! It's in my 10 top sites near Catalunya! The waterfall is incredible and there are a lot of tourist and mountain sites very close waiting for the views of visitors.

98% of the hikers here just go up the main trail, a road really, to the cafe at the end. Forget that! After you cross the bridge, take the second trail on the left and go up the side of the mountain to a beautiful...More

Lovely easy 2 & half hour hike to the waterfall. Busy, but enjoyable hike. We had a small bit of rain on the way, so advisable to bring wet gear. There is a restaurant close to the top which has lovely views of the Cirque...More

Located far away from the huge traffic congestion, this nature gem is worth the drive through a winding road. The reward to get there is enormous. This is a place not to be missed for nature’s lovers who will not regret it. Highly recommended.
