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.

The ride down is a blast. Around Halloween they have a pumpkin toss game where you try to hit a target down on the floor of the gorge from the tram. The ride only take a minute or so and even for those afraid of heights it's not that bad (if you stand in the middle). Yes I recommend taking... More

The views from the gondola are breathtaking! The operator gives a wonderful guided tour. We had people from 1 year to 70 years old in our group and there is something for everyone to be interested in. The shops are well supplied and all the staff are very friendly. I will definitely go again.

This is my second visit-1st 29 years ago-and not much has changed. The views on the tram are outstanding!. The views from the bridge are excellent. Best to do during the spring run off. I was aware of the expensive prices at the bottom, so I did not plan on eating there and bought my souvineers(sp) elsewhere! There is a... More

I brought a group of Chinese students here last August. Despite having driven the canyon route many times, I'd never had a chance to stop at this attraction. I found it kind of quirky, in an enduring way. I thought it was just a gondola ride- which it does include- but there is also a small series of building at... More

A short and very steep ride with great views. There was a group of 11 of us and the attendant gave us a very good group discount. There are two gondolas but at the time of year, only one was running, so there was a bit of a wait. I would recommend taking the ride and visiting the attractions on... More

Great salmon chowder for a small town but nothing to brag home to mom about! prices are fair but not much too do and seems pretty run down. Maybe if they invested into the facility it could offer much more!

Mythological Cerberus is the three-headed dog that guards the gates of Hades. Although I heard no barking upon descending into Hell’s Gate, I was certainly impressed with the set-up and education center alongside the river. But this review venue is only for the AirTram gondola, the only reasonable way to get to the river. (The tour guide said I could... More

The drive up to Hell's Gate is nice and the staff at Hell's Gate were friendly and knowledgeable, but that is about all I have for positives. Everything is overpriced and expensive including the airtam down, the food, and the merchandise. If you are going to visit come early in the year, as the fee for the airtram is actually... More
