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.

We weren’t going to do this but decided at the last minute to just go since it’s the only sky tram that actually goes down instead up. We’re glad we did. The ride down takes about 3 minutes and it’s so amazing seeing and hearing...More

Heard some stories from people who went here years ago (some more then 10 years ago). Maybe back then it was spectacular, but not anymore. We stayed in Hope so we had to drive up there! 100km up and down! Waste of money and time!...More

This place looks like a typical tourist place from the outside, but once at the river the view, museum, and fisheries exhibit are free good... Walk down and ride up for half price!

Hell's Gate Airtram is a unique experience and well worth the stop. Great views of the Fraser from the tram and the visitor area at the bottom. Informative displays and films.
