Opening Day for the 2014 Season – April 17th
Drive the Scenic Fraser Canyon with its’ 7 mountain tunnels into the historic heart of British Columbia and visit the biggest ‘rush’ on the Gold Rush Trail. You can see this place for yourself as you exchange mountain ranges aboard one of the only descending gondolas in North America. These aerial trams will give you a birds’ eye view of this historic landmark where 200 million gallons of water per minute thunder through this 33 metre wide passage. “We had to travel where no human being should venture for surely we have encountered the gates of hell”. – Simon Fraser, 1808. You will witness firsthand what these words really meant to this early explorer.
