Hell’s Gate Airtram
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!”Hells Gate is home to huge fishways constructed to assist the millions of salmon that pass through annually en route to their spawning grounds. While visiting, walk across the suspension bridge, take a few snap shots, then go back and view the river from many observation decks. There is an educational center with videos, the history of the railways and of course the lives of the spawning salmon.

REO Rafting Resort
REO is blessed with one of the most amazing locations right on the edge of the beautiful, jade-green Nahatlatch (Nah-hat-latch) River. This amazing river offers 12 km of rapid-fire white water (37 rapids rated Class 3, 4 & 4+) finishing right at our private and secluded river’s edge resort. Far more than just world class whitewater rafting, our resort covers 25-acres of wilderness seclusion with 2 km of private river frontage. When you are not rafting, you can try your hand at rock rappelling and take a hike on one of our many nature trails. You can also stay around camp and have a soak in the hot-tub, enjoy some music around the campfire or maybe even treat yourself to a well deserved massage! When the day is done, sleep at the river’s edge in one of our cabin tents, and enjoy the sound of the rushing river.

Hell’s Gate Jet Boat Tours
Hell’s Gate Jet Boat Tours offers local and visiting travelers a rare opportunity to see the Fraser Canyon and Hell’s Gate from the water. For many years, the only people who frequented the canyon were a few local fishing guides and First Nations who still today fish the Fraser Canyon for sockeye and chinook Salmon. Local guide company STS Guiding Service has been offering guided sturgeon fishing adventures in the Fraser Canyon. These trips often ventured deep into the canyon where many guests experienced not only great fishing but the incredible scenery that the Fraser Canyon and Hell’s Gate offer. We are not only offering Jet Boat Tours in the Fraser Canyon, but we are also offering scenic tours of Pitt Lake, Upper Pitt River, Lillooet River, Harrison Lake & Harrison River.
Yale Historic Site
Yale, B.C. was once the largest city north of San Francisco and west of Chicago. Originally established in 1848 as a Hudson’s Bay Company trading post, Yale grew with the influx of an estimated 30,000 gold miners during the gold rush of 1858. In the 1860’s, with the construction of the Cariboo Wagon Road, Yale became the main terminal for one of the largest sternwheeler routes in North America. The 1880’s saw the building of the Canadian Pacific Railway, with construction headquarters housed in Yale. The Yale Historic Site is one of eleven Province of British Columbia Heritage Sites and is managed by the Yale and District Historical Society. The Society was formed in 1977 to gather, preserve, record and exhibit Yale’s history.
