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.

Gorner Gorge reviews
It's a little bit of a walk from town, but well worth the visit. Small admission fee and the walkways are well maintained.

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!
