Hells 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 Airtram 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. While visiting Hells Gate Airtram enjoy the Simons Cafe Restaurant, Famous Fudge from the Fudge Factory, Ice Cream Parlor / Candy Store and Shop for great souvenirs at the Gift Shop. Hells Gate Airtram is a dog friendly attraction and is open seasonally mid April through mid October. Hell’s Gate Airtram is known for the raging rapids in the river. Water levels are known to rise up to 100 feet in the spring time to 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.
