Driving the scenic Fraser Canyon with its 7 mountain tunnels into the historic heart of British Columbia you come upon a strange and wondrous sight: 750 million litres of water travelling through a 33 metre wide passage.
This is Hell’s Gate, so named after Simon Fraser’s comments during his search for a better fur trade route. Hell’s Gate is poised on the Gold Rush Trail, and it contains one of the only descending gondolas in North America. These aerial trams that cover a 152 metre descent give you a bird’s eye view of one of the most treacherous passages on the Fraser River.
We are located 2 – 1/2 hours East of Vancouver and 2 – 1/2 hours West of Kamloops on the #1 Trans Canada Hwy in the scenic Fraser Canyon.
