Map of Hope

Welcome to Hope!

The origin of its name is somewhat vague, but one thing is for certain, the community of Hope has all the amenities and attractions one could hope for. Located 154 km (96 miles) east of Vancouver in the Fraser Valley, Hope is situated at either the beginning or the end of the Coquihalla Highway, depending on which direction travellers are driving. The community's historic sites are of particular interest to travellers, including the Othello-Quintette Tunnels. Built between 1911 and 1918, the tunnels offer fantastic views of the natural surroundings. The largest rockslide in B.C.'s history, the Hope Slide occurred in January of 1965, and is a fascinating site to visit. Hell's Gate Airtram, one of Hope's largest attractions, suspends visitors over Hell's Gate - a gorge that in its peak time of spring surges over 200 million gallon of water through its 35 metre (110 ft.) wide opening. From this height, visitors can also gain a prime view of the entire area.
