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.

I come here several times each year with my grandkids. The ride across the river is spectacular and I appreciate the information provided by the tour conductor.

Interesting Canadian history, those explorers where something else. The river is so powerful! Not worth the price of admission. Would have been nice if you could have hiked down and taken the tram back had a picnic down there,

As others point out, there's no toilet until you've paid your money and crossed the gorge. A cozy mix of walkways, stores, play areas, gold panning trough will meet you. Like most of the crowd, we had an ice cream cone and sat in a...More
