Names like Spuzzum, Boston Bar, Yale and Lytton reflect both a colonial and railroad history along the Fraser Canyon, intermingled with a rich First Nations heritage.
Yale, a short drive south of Lytton, has an especially rich history with plenty of sites to explore.
Housed in a 1942 Canadian National trainmaster's house, the Lytton Museum has an impressive collection that explores the area's cultures, industries and early settlements. Many items date back to the 1860s and one, the Ancyloceras Phylium Mollusca, is 122 million years old. Resembling a huge prawn, this unique specimen is largest ever found on the west coast.
The museum is also responsible for the caboose across the road, a conversion of a 1918 boxcar, beside which is an enormous jelly roll, a geological phenomenon caused by pre-historic glacial movement.

Drive the scenic Fraser Canyon with its 7 mountain tunnels through the historic heart of BC & relive the biggest 'rush' on the Gold Rush Trail. Hell's Gate Airtram is in a location so unique, the 'afterlife' have come back to use it as a playground. Early explorers refer to it as 'a place where no human being should venture' and man and nature battle here for supremacy. Experience this place for yourself as you exchange mountain ranges aboard one of the only descending gondolas in North America.
Hell's Gate Airtram was awarded the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence (2014).
