Owner description: 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 airtram it self is a nice quick ride into the canyon, great views over the river. Maybe a bit expensive, but compared to other cable car attractions, it was reasonable. In the canyon there is a bridge over the river to enjoy the view. However there are no other walks, other than up hill. If you are a train... More

You must take a campy shot of your loved one using the photo op tram car set up for visitors. We arrived too late, but a nice park attendant told us we could boondock in the parking lot. It was perfect; we were there for first thing in the AM. Loved the air tram, enjoyed wandering the area on the... More

Visited late afternoon so did not give it the time it really needed to appreciate it fully. Could easily spend hours there exploring views and riding the AirTram. Shops and Food on site. Well worth a visit.

Breath taking scenery, especially when the salmon are running. The awesome force of the Fraser River rushing through the narrow channel, spectacular. Brian and Debbie great people and they hire amazing summer staff . An easy tram ride even for those with height issues.

Non scary and reasonable priced ride across Fraser River river gorge to restaurant and museum (and clean toilets). Regular return trip every few minutes. Amazing views of river from cable air tram and also from suspension bridge. Free parking. Good value restaurant with stunning views over river

I still remember this place from when I was a kid. I thought it was the coolest thing ever. I remember my mom saying it was hotter than hell's gate. We found this pretty much by accident on one of our trips heading to Vancouver island. There aren't any words I can really use to describe the beauty of crossing... More

To ride over Hell's Gate Fraser River was a thrill in the Airtram. On the "other side" is Simon's Cafe, a suspension bridge and other "viewing" platforms plus much more. ALL AWESOME!
