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.

Great salmon chowder for a small town but nothing to brag home to mom about! prices are fair but not much too do and seems pretty run down. Maybe if they invested into the facility it could offer much more!

The drive up to Hell's Gate is nice and the staff at Hell's Gate were friendly and knowledgeable, but that is about all I have for positives. Everything is overpriced and expensive including the airtam down, the food, and the merchandise. If you are going...More

It is an expensive nice view. It is neat to go on the airtram down into the canyon. But at the bottom is a restaurant, fudge store, and a bridge. It is the narrowest part of the Fraser River. Would I do this attraction again,...More
