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.

Hella Gate is definitely worth the trip plus you pay once and come back all summer long. The guides are all super knowledgable! It's great to see the magic of the mighty Fraser River

This is a great experience, tram takes you over a mighty canyon. There is plenty to do when you get across, gold panning, museum, great coffee stop/restaurant, gift shop, fudgery and ice creams. Take time to read the history - makes for a chilling read!

The Airtram is totally overpriced. Views from the other side are not worth the visit. When we were there, it rather looked like Angel's Door. I don't recommend going there; there are other way more interesting sights nearby.
