Petite Cascade de Tendon

The Petite Cascade de Tendon was really more of a short series of smaller-drop cascades. While it didn’t quite possess the size of the neighboring Grande Cascade de Tendon, this one seemed…

Grande Cascade de Tendon

True to its name, the Grande Cascade de Tendon was the larger of two waterfalls in relatively close proximity to each other in Northeastern France. This particular waterfall featured a cumulative…

Cascades du Herisson (“Herisson Waterfalls”)

Les Cascades du Herisson was perhaps the one waterfall excursion in France that made us see waterfalls in our sleep! That was because the Herisson Valley harbored at least seven…

Cascade de Flumen

Cascade de Flumen was the last waterfall we visited on our 2012 France trip, and it was certainly one of the more obscure ones because it probably wouldn’t have had an obvious trail…

Saut du Doubs

Saut du Doubs was a waterfall we went a little out of our way for. The reason for such effort was that this waterfall happened to be a rare transnational waterfall…

Cascade d’Arpenaz

Cascade d’Arpenaz was a pretty easy and straightforward waterfall for us to see and visit as it was easily seen off the A40 autoroute. It was certainly one of…

Cascade de Berard

Cascade de Berard was the lone waterfall on our France trip where we didn’t get to see it properly after hiking to it. That was because access to the viewpoint…

Cascade d’Angon

Cascade d’Angon provided us the perfect waterfalling excuse for enjoying what we think was one of France’s “hidden” gems – the charming canal town of Old Annecy…

Cascade de Seythenex

Cascade de Seythenex provided us another waterfalling excuse to explore around the outskirts of the Lake Annecy area. What made this impressive 45m waterfall different was…

Cascade de Glandieu

Cascade de Glandieu was probably one of Julie’s favorite waterfalls in France. It had what she likes to call “character” because its underlying wall had both texture and color…

The Saut de La Pucelle (which I believe translates as “the leap of the Virgin” or “the Virgin’s leap”) was the lone waterfall attraction that we were able to fit in during…

Sillans La Cascade

Sillans La Cascade is the name of both the pleasant double-barreled waterfall as well as the town just upstream from it. Technically, both the waterfall and town…

Saut du Loup

Saut du Loup is nothing grand, but it is an intriguing stop driving through the rugged Loup Gorge. Visiting this waterfall was pretty much a piece…

Cascade d’Ars

Cascade d’Ars (or the Ars Waterfall) was certainly one of the few waterfalls we had to physically work for in while in France. This waterfall was both impressive and memorable probably…

Cascade de Gavarnie (“Gavarnie Falls”)

La Cascade de Gavarnie is certainly one of the more well-documented waterfalls in France. It sits in a glacial cirque, resulting in what we believe has to be one of the most beautiful locales…

Pont d’Espagne (Bridge of Spain)

Pont d’Espagne (or Bridge of Spain) I think really refers to the general scenic area encompassing Lac de Gaube (Gaube Lake), the waterfalls here, and the minor developments at road’s end…

Grande Cascade du Mt Dore

La Grande Cascade du Mont Dore (the Big Waterfall of the Mt Dore) is a pleasant waterfall excusion that takes in not only the waterfall but wonderful birds eye views…

Gimel Les Cascades

Gimel Les Cascades (literally Gimel The Waterfalls) is the name of both the collective set of waterfalls as well as the charming town above them. The waterfalls may also be…

Cascade de Salins

Cascade de Salins was a memorable waterfall to us because of its position in front of some historical-looking arched bridges. In reality though, those bridges appear to be…
