Early Canadian explorers and gold-seekers named the impassable stretch of water rushing through the narrow walls of Fraser Canyon “Hells Gate”—admire this impressive force of nature from the comfortable, elevated vantage point of an aerial tram.

Step into one of North America’s only descending gondolas for an up-close look at the rushing rapids of Hells Gate, and learn about Fraser Canyon’s remarkable history—as a First Nations fishing ground, a stop on the fur trade, and a busy route known as Cariboo Road to Gold Rush miners seeking wealth, this breathtaking waterway has played a key role throughout British Columbia’s past.

Check out the fishways and salmon ladders designed to counteract environmental damage from years of railway traffic, fishing, and landslides triggered by human development. Today, sockeye and pink salmon follow their migratory instinct and make their way upstream through this raging river each year to spawn.

After your 994-foot (303 m) ride over the whitewater, pop into the visitor center to hear local folklore about the ghosts and spirits that haunt the historic site, learn more about the salmon run, and get more insight into the area’s early explorers and native populations.
