Fraser Canyon Scenic Highway Road Trip

119.6 miles: 2 hours, 12 minutes
Once an imposing barrier, the Fraser Canyon now serves as a transportation corridor through which two railways and the Trans-Canada Highway pass, thanks to tunnels, bridges and roadbeds blasted out of sheer cliff walls. At Hell’s Gate, the churning Fraser River is forced into a gorge only 110 feet wide. An aerial tram carries visitors across, providing spectacular views.

Fraser Canyon Scenic Highway follows the Trans-Canada Highway (Hwy. 1) along the Thompson and Fraser rivers, clinging to steep, forested mountainsides and passing through a canyon north of Yale with clifftops soaring high above. From British Columbia’s arid Interior Plateau, the route leaves the Thompson River at Lytton to join up with the Fraser River.
