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.

Good idea having the AirTram across the canyon and down to the riverside. Fantastic views all the way down and informative staff during the journey, explaining the history. Food, shop and tickets themselves all very expensive - trying to make the most of tourists I guess! But still worth a visit.

The view was spectacular. I must say we thoroughly enjoyed our ride over the Hell's Gate gorge. Worth every penny to see this view.

The visit was pleasant although the tram ride was shorter than I realized. The bottom had nice activities to pass the time.

The history of the location is hard to believe. This is a neat spot. A lot of people drive by and never appreciate the important history. We were part of a tour group. Lunch was good. Salmon chowder and Asian salad. Spring is best the water is highest.

The descent in the Airtram over the gushing noisy waters was very smooth and once at ground level you can walk across the suspension bridge for ground level views. You can take a longer walk if you wish. The centre has the usual gift shop and cafe, but also a museum explaining the salmon & fishing history and there are... More

This tram takes you into the Fraser Canyon over one of the roughest part of the river. It's really amazing to see the water crashing into the rocks and hard to believe that this was once used as a trade route

My wife and I were staying in Hope in our RV and took the motorcycle for a ride to this attraction. We took the AirTram down 500 feet to where the attraction actually is. The cost was $44.00 for both of us. You get some beautiful aerial photos or video as you decent down to the site. Once at the... More

To see and hear the roar of the rush of water going through the narrow gorge and then to take the Spanish cable car down to the site itself is breath taking and a little nerve racking.

Get aboard the tram as it takes you into the canyon seeing the waters hitting the canyon walls below. See the mighty Fraser as it makes it way to the lower mainland and points beyond. Bring your camera as this is a experience worth capturing . There is a gift shop and some food as well.
