Overview

Drive the Scenic Fraser Canyon with its’ seven mountain tunnels through the historic heart of British Columbia and relive the biggest ‘rush’ on the Gold Rush Trail. A location so unique the ‘afterlife’ have come back to use it as a playground. Early explorers refer to it as “a place where no human being should venture”, and man & nature battle here for supremacy.

22 CAD for 5 minutes with the tram to see Fraser river a bit closer. Sure, the view is great but 22 dollars is stil a lot of money. To know that a few kilometers further you can walk over the 1926 bridge for free.

Beautiful views and very knowledgeable staff. Always worth the stop! Just as good now as it was my first time 12 years ago!

Like everyone else the team fee is high but after parting with the money, the view of the ferocious river is a must see. The history from the gold rush era is also interesting.

The views on the airtram and at the bottom too are phenomenal. At the bottom there's a suspension bridge you walk across which gives you a great view of the canyon. The history is also very interesting. You can hike to the bottom and take...More

I come here several times each year with my grandkids. The ride across the river is spectacular and I appreciate the information provided by the tour conductor.

Interesting Canadian history, those explorers where something else. The river is so powerful! Not worth the price of admission. Would have been nice if you could have hiked down and taken the tram back had a picnic down there,

In a nutshell, I’d have to say, what an idea to put a tram over such an historical water way. It’s the Fraser River, running faster than the Niagara Falls. The history of how the USA and Canada together saved the Salmon during their quest...More

If you are in the area then Hell's Gate has to be seen. The 'tram' ride is short and offers great views of the river from above, but once on the other side the selection of exhibits, the shop and the cafe are soon covered,...More
