Town of Golden history:
Golden embodies the best of this pristine pocket of the west. The town’s unaffected charm, embracing friendliness and flawless scenery make every day fun. Preserved remnants of early 19th century architecture harmonize with alluring shops and restaurants.
Naturalists converge on Golden as a vantage point for wildlife viewing and birdwatching. Anglers fish the rivers and lakes for trophies. Cyclists travel the celebrated Golden Triangle or mountain bike their way over hundreds of miles of alpine trails. Golden is bordered by six national parks, thereby becoming a bridge to vast wilderness and is the gateway to dozens of backcountry lodges.
The Kicking Horse River is a national favourite with whitewater rafters and kayakers. The mountains are drawing cards for world-class climbers. Mount 7 is an internationally acclaimed gliding destination and a premiere choice for the discriminating sightseer.
Golden Golf & Country Club is indeed a gem of a golf course in the Kootenay Rockies. An impressive design, superb mountain views, tumbling creeks and waterfalls are all part of a day at this course. Golden is also home to Kicking Horse Mountain Resort, The Champagne Powder Capital of Canada and to world-class heli, nordic and backcountry skiing in the winter and an adventure centre during the summer. With affordable accommodation, a great selection of restaurants and shops, in-town hiking paths and a riverside park, Golden is the ultimate stop for outdoor adventure.
