The Aareschlucht gorge is located in eastern Berner Oberland and connects the towns of Meiringen and Innertkirchen. A roughly 1.4 km long trail crosses the gorge along the wild, milky white waters of the River Aare, and passes tunnels and ledges below the limestone overhangs. The gorge is 180 meters deep and at the narrowest point less than one meter wide. The Aare River flows at a rate of up to 12 km per hour. In the summer, the canyon is splendidly lit on Thursday evening.
