Overview

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.

It was a great stop to the beautiful adventure thru the Frazier Canyon. Views breathtaking and the history very interesting. We really enjoyed the movies and learning about the salmon migration.

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
