Hell’s Gate Information.

“We had to travel where no human being should venture, for surely we have encountered the gates of hell.” – Simon Fraser 1808.

Hell’s Gate is an abrupt narrowing of British Columbia‘s Fraser River, located immediately downstream of Boston Bar, B.C. in the southern Fraser Canyon. The towering rock walls of the Fraser River plunge toward each other forcing the waters through a passage only 35 metres (115 ft) wide. It is also the name of the rural locality at the same location.
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.
