A View Above All Views of Fraser River

Come and experience the awe-inspiring views and the exhilaration of being suspended over the immense power of the Fraser River. Hell’s Gate Airtram is a safe and exhilarating adventure for the whole family.

Enjoy the fully suspended gondola as it passes over the most treacherous section of the Fraser River, Hells Gate. This section of the river was named after Simon Fraser’s voyage in 1808, stating in his journal that “no man should ever pass through here it was truly like passing through the Gates of Hell!”

While visiting, walk across the suspension bridge, take a few snap shots, then go back and view the river from many observation decks. Water levels are known to rise up to 100 feet in the spring reaching record heights of 209 feet deep. That is over 200,000,000 gallons of water ever minute raging through a narrow rock canyon just over 100 feet wide.

In our village we have an educational center with videos, the history of the railways and information about the lives of the spawning salmon. Hells Gate is home to massive fish ways constructed to assist the millions of salmon that pass through annually en route to their spawning grounds.

While visiting Hells Gate Airtram enjoy the Simons Cafe, Homemade Fudge from our Fudge Factory, Ice Cream Parlor / Candy Store.

Lunch included at Simmons Cafe, when signing up for tour please note any dietary restrictions.
