The Fraser Canyon is an 84 km landform of the Fraser River where it descends rapidly through narrow rock gorges in the Coast Mountains en route from the Interior Plateau of British Columbia to the Fraser Valley. The southern stretch is a major transportation corridor to the Interior from "the Coast", with the Canadian National and Canadian Pacific Railways and the Trans-Canada Highway carved out of its rock faces with many of the canyon's side-crevasses spanned by bridges and trestles.
At Hells Gate, near Boston Bar, the canyon walls rise about 1,000 metres (3,300 ft) above the rapids.
Fish ladders along the river's side permit migrating salmon to bypass a rockslide that diverted the river during the blasting of the Canadian Northern Railway line in 1913. Today there is a specially-built air-tram, which takes tourists down to Hells Gate, where they may view the fish ladders as well as the boiling rush of the Fraser's waters.
Find out more about the Cisco Bridges at Siska, a few minutes south of Lytton.
