Day 50 “Go Ahead I Dare you” Take a ride on Hell’s Gate Airtram


Hell’s Gate Airtram Attractions


One of the exciting things that visitors to Vancouver

can do is visit Hell’s Gate Airtram, this is located in

Frasher Canon with a long history stemming from

the Gold Rush and exquisite scenery.

This is where an air tram can be taken through the

35 meter wide gorge of Fraser Canyon and above

the fast running Fraser River, where the view is

exciting from high above.


This is where so much history occurred in the

Vancouver area, with the Fraser Canyon battle during

the Gold Rush of 1858, the building of the 1912

Canadian National Railway that caused a slide and

destroyed the salmon migration, which was corrected

in 1944 with the building of the International Fishways.


The passenger on the air tram is at times during the

ride 500 feet above highway level to river level.

There are other places to visit while at Fraser Canyon,

there is a restaurant where a full meal can be eaten or

a light snack at Simon’s Café.


One of the real attractions is the Fudge Factory where

more than one hundred different flavors of fudge

are made.


There is the Fisheries Exhibit, this is where the life cycle

of the salmon can be seen and the fishways are explained.


Since this was a Gold Rush area it is also possible to

pan for gold where the men of the Gold Rush of the

1860’s looked for their gold nuggets at Hills Bar in

Fraser Canyon.


Visitor can also take a ghost tour where ghosts have

been found through paranormal investigations, of

the ones that are known, there is the Edward, the

smoking man.


For more of the views in Fraser Canyon there is the

suspension bridge and observation decks, which have

spectacular views.


There is also the gift shop to take home a memento or a gift.


This is a day of excitement the whole family can enjoy

with all the activities and the air tram, panning for

gold and ghost hunting


The scenic views will captivate the visitor and this is

one of the memorable trips.


This is where the entire family had an exciting day.
