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. « less

Great family outing. We took visitors from England. They were in awe of there spectacular view. The staff were excellent. Very accommodating and helpful. They have never been to Canada so they learned so much about the west coast. Brian( Upper Terminal Mgr) made our visit that much better. Our visitors will remember their wonderful experience.

We stopped on way back to Vancouver and spent a couple of nice hours here. The tram ride is fun, the restaurant clean, the gift shop well stocked and there is lots of choice of fudge and ice-cream. Our favourite part was standing on the bridge across the river. It was a beautiful, sunny and calm day, but it was... More

This was a great stop to view the Fraser Canyon - and what a wonderful view. It was a beautiful sunny day and we could see white-water rafters below us and as we lunched at the cafe (great food), the Rocky Mountaineer train came bye around noon. It slowed up for its guests to view the canyon and so we... More

This attraction is about 90 minutes at a steady pace from Abbotsford, East along Highway 1. This is where the River Fraser squeezes its way through the rocky valley, along side the railways north and south of the river. You start your visit with a cable car ride across the gorge, the the visitor centre on the other side. It... More

We loved the Hell's Gate Airtram experience! The folks were friendly and efficient but just as important was the attraction. IT WAS WORTH IT! It was a great experience, the entire facility was clean, well kept and had a good gift store and a fudge store. The information was laid out and interesting to read. There is a great history...

While visiting friends in Hope, one of our excursions took us to Hell's Gate on the Fraser River. Prices were in the upper range, but there are frequent coupons in local papers and guide books. The tram, made in Switzerland, drops about 500 ft right down the cliff and over the river. At the base are gift shops, a very... More

We had a buy one get one free coupon. I love that once you pay once for a season you have a seasons pass! We went twice so far this year and my kids love running around on the bridge and we are considering going for the pumpkin drop
