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.

“Wow! What an experience!”

Riding the airtram down the cliff and over the raging river was a nailbiter! A very cool place to see. Lunch in their restaurant was good and the staff was very friendly. The raging river was breath-taking.

“great attraction”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2014

Unfortunately we were there when the weather was not nice and quite abit off our road trip! However definitely a must see! Trip down into the canyon from the roadside probably would have been a bit more spectacular if the weather was brighter and could see the tops of the surrounding mountains. The people were friendly and knowledgeable when asked anything.

“The Hell's Gate Airtram is an amazing little tucked away attraction on the Trans-Canada Hwy!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2014

It may be a small tourist attraction, but Hell's Gate harbours more than enough sights for any traveller! Its Airtram is quiet and all grounds except for the gift shop and cafe are dog-friendly. All the staff were incredibly attentive and knowledgeable and ever ready with a homemade treat for my dog. The salmon fish ladders at the bottom of the Fraser River Gorge are truly an engineering feat; a fisheries exhibit explains it all! If you're heading through interior BC, it's a must stop! Try the local salmon in their delicious chowder or burger! Step into Hell's Gate and absorb the awe and wonder of the Fraser River!

If you've driven by numerous times, and never experienced this attraction, you should. It's a part of history.

“Great Fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2014

Had a great time at Hell's Gate on May 6. Close up view of the power of the Fraser River, and great for any history buffs interested in the Caribou Gold Rush Trail. CN Rail tracks close by too! Enjoyed a huge burger at the restaurant, bought some delicious fudge at the gift store. All staff friendly and knowledgable. It was a great stop on a wonderful two day Circle Route through the Fraser Valley.
