Welcome to the Fraser Canyon

The Fraser Canyon is an impressive natural wonder, a deep chasm cut by the Fraser River millions of years ago. Discover its rugged scenery marked by towering mountains, rushing rivers and creeks, bottomless lakes, and breathtaking wilderness as you wind your way through tunnels carved out of solid rock. Outdoor adventures abound as you experience the thrill of river rafting and camp out under a dark sky twinkling with millions of stars. Lace-up for exhilarating hikes with views for days as you chase thundering waterfalls and catch glimpses of the abundant wildlife inhabiting the region.
Steeped in rich culture and historic value, the Fraser Canyon is home to the Stó:lō peoples, Yale First Nation, and Nlaka’pamux peoples. Take a step back in time and revisit the Gold Rush days and learn the history of the Canyon Wars at the Yale Historic Site. Follow the Cariboo Wagon Road and step onto the Alexandra Bridge which also serves as a stunning photo op. Watch trains snake alongside the river and recall the construction of two trans-continental railways tainted with destructive explosions.

Come Explore
the Canyon

The Fraser Canyon is a four season destination, suited for all types of explorers from the history buff to the adventure seeker. It is a photographer’s paradise with limitless natural backdrops, teeming with wildlife and fascinating history. As you wind through the canyon you can stop in somewhere for a refreshing meal, visit Tuckkwiowhum Village and experience Indigenous culture, or try something new such as fishing or gold panning.

The Trans-Canada Highway is also the road less travelled, with less traffic and lower elevation than other routes. Challenge yourself to hold your breath as you travel through the various tunnels. Try to remember their names as you approach the “Gates of Hell”. Once there, take a break and stretch your legs in an air tram suspending on cables descending 1,000 ft. over the international fishways. Visit Frances Harrington Park in Boston Bar and try to imagine crossing the Fraser River in North America’s only aerial car Ferry.
