1600 metres to walk from the car park, around the site and return. Very interesting and worth the visit. Nice little shop at entrance with snacks and souveniers + a decent toilet block. Can get very busy in summer months and school holidays.

It's a short walk, but it's a stunning place. It's worth the visit. A hidden jewel in the south of France.

This accessible park of geological wonders is a gem. Along with the mesmerizing formations, there are superlative views of the nearby mountains, plus a display along the trail of excellent, humorous metal sculptures made of discarded industrial bits. We walked the 40 minutes from Ille-sur-Tet to the park office and learned that we’d taken the long route beside a busy road instead of the shorter, easier way. But that was on us. Once we were there, we were enthralled. Every part was worth the modest entry fee, including the unusually well-equipped and clean toilets, the picnic sites, and the descriptive literature. Don’t miss it. As I said, it’s a gem.

We travelled 30 mins to get here from our accommodation and very glad we did. Carpark is free and 5 euro per person to get pass a staffed lodge towards the top. This presumably is for the excellent upkeep of these marvelous formations. Our 2 year old daughter loved them too. Takes 15 mins to walk there, nice steady incline. Superb!

Nice but expensive for what it is

Nice place to see if you pass by but don't go out of your way just to see that. Honestly, as much as they give you a plan with numbers with "stuff to see", they basically try to make the path to the main attraction an attraction on its own but the numbers are just "there" with some explanation in the guide with nothing of interest to see.

Then the price, a family of 4 was 18€ but in Canadian Dollars, that's 27$ (rate of 1.5 in July 2019) which is way overkill.

Pros: Nice geological formation
Cons: Overpriced and the main attraction took us roughly 15 minutes.

We were mesmerised by this place, and standing amongst these ancient rock formations was delightful. Interesting place to visit.

How fantastic are the Orgues d'Ille Sur Tet in France
Sep 2018
The remarkable Orgues d'Ille Sur Tet are an example of geology heritage worth seeing. The facilities are amazing and the walk around the features are very impressive. Interpretation is very good. Guided walks are available but check first for timing.

Stunning rock formations, unlike any we had ever seen before. If it is hot and sunny (as it was for us in mid-September) take plenty water with you since there is not much shade. It took us about 1.5 hours to wander round. Site was well signposted and there was ample parking. Well worth visiting if you are in the area.

Spur of the moment trip as the beach was a bit hot! Well worth a visit. Takes about an hour to meander around. Can grab a drink in the cafe. Easy to look around and pretty amaze.

Worth a look ...

Tickets are only €5 each, then you wind you way up a dusty path to this amphitheatre of giant sandstone weather worn rocks. The guide card tells you the history and geology of the area.

Basically it’s a mini, mini version of the Bryce Canyon in the US.

Worth an hour if you are in the vicinity.
