This is a different tour of the gorge at dusk, cheaper than visiting in the day and has illuminated areas along the route. At the end there is traditional music around the camp fire and jacket potatoes for everyone followed by a torch lit walk...More

At the base of the small canyon is a small, free museum about the power plant the water drives---with free, clean, restrooms. The "hike" itself is well worth the minimal cost---such lovely views being down in the canyon---nearby free trails do not get down where...More

Nice for when you need a relaxing day between big hikes but still want to see how impressive nature can be. Info centre is really interesting and the gorge is great fun

Very enjoyable for family with kids. You must get into the water, which is by the way cold. Have some clothes to change as you will get wet. I wish they have a picnic area for barbecue, but it is not allowed.
