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, Xwoxwela:lhp (Yale First Nation), Nlaka’pamux, and St’at’imc 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.
