The Fraser Canyon is a delight to drive through. The incredible scenery includes mountains, rivers and lakes. Explore hidden tunnels and stop off at one of the historic sights along the way.

Outdoor activities abound, try your hand at gold panning, visit the historic gold rush town of Yale, experience the thrill of river rafting or throw your hiking boots on and explore one of the many trails along the canyon.

Looking to spot some trains? The Fraser Canyon has a long list of amazing places to see trains as they wind around mountains, go through tunnels and cross bridges.

  1. Hells Gate Airtram
  2. Hells Gate Airtram Suspension Bridge
  3. Sisco Train Bridges
  4. Koham Shuttleย 
  5. Lytton Catwalk
  6. Yale Historic Site
  7. Ward Tea House
  8. Othello Tunnels

The Canadian National Railway and the Canadian Pacific Railway lines have travelled each side of the canyon for well over 100 years, midway through at Siska (Cisco) they cross the mighty Fraser to switch sides and continue their journey across the country. โ €โ €

The Kaoham Shuttle is an amazing train trip along the shores of Seton Lake, incorporating culture and history, train memorabilia, and wildlife viewing and bird watching.

At Coquihalla Provincial Parks you will find the Othello Tunnels, five tunnels and 2 bridges that now been decommissioned which were built in 1914 to connect the Koutenay Region with the BC coast by rail. These tunnels were built in a straight line through the granite cliffs. โ €

Along the route you will find countless locations from the highway or in our communities and parks where you can watch the trains. Remember keep lots of distance from the tracks and refrain from entering the railway property.
