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.

Just loved the stories about the spirits that frequent the restaurant there. Saw the puff of smoke from one of the spirits - so cool! The small stores are awesome to frequent, not to mention the history of the airtram and how it was built. Lots of old utensils and cooking items to view. Really a worthwhile outing.

I'm not a negative person and in dozens of Trip Advisor reviews, this only the 2nd negative review that I've ever written because I realize the consequences to any potential Business or Tourist Facility. That being said, I Think that the Hell's Gate Airtram is One of the Biggest Rip-offs in Beautiful British Columbia....Why - because we were So Put... More

This write up is on the café located inside the lower terminal called Simon Fraser. Food was good and service was friendly. As this is a captured market, prices are a little high for what you get. Though it is nice to sit on the outside deck and listen to the rapids as you eat lunch.

Being wanting to visit this place for a few years. So while staying in Revelstoke made a road trip over. The scenery was brilliant. If travelling from Victoria to it pass the parking area there is a turn round point, so anyone with walking difficulties etc, will not have to walk up the steps to the bridge over the road.... More

I've passed by here every summer for decades and never stopped in. We decided to stop in a do the tour on a whim while returning from the Cariboo. The tram ride down was nice and the displays and presentations were good. The decking and exterior of the facilities down by the river were a little tired and are in... More

Trams up or down are always fun. The story behind Hell's Gate is interesting,and it's fun (or scary) to stand on the bridge, which has an "open" mesh floor so that you can see the water below. There is a trail for hiking down/up, no charge for that. Salmon chowder in the cafeteria is excellent. A fun natural attraction to... More

This place was breathe taking! It was 1 hour away from Harrison Hot Springs so I decided to take a drive. Tickets online was 18.46 Canadian dollars. Once I was there and looked at everything I was kind of disappointed. I thought they offered alot more. Once u get on the tram down the mountain you look around the little... More
