The historic Othello Tunnels are opening May long weekend.

The tunnels close annually for the season due to unstable conditions, falling rocks, and ice.

The Othello tunnels are over 100 years old, and are a series of five tunnels connected by bridges. They’ve been featured in several movies, such as Rambo: First Blood, War for the Planet Of the Apes, Fire with Fire, Shoot to Kill, The National Dream, and more.

The re-opening of the popular Hope attraction offers visitors picturesque views of the Coquihalla Canyon Provincial Park and the Kettle Valley Railway – so make sure to bring your cameras with you.

The hike through the tunnels is a relaxed 3.5KM round-trip, and flashlights are strongly recommended.

The tunnels are located in the Coquihalla Canyon Provincial Park in Hope BC.
