Golden is a small town in southeast British Columbia. But what it lacks in size, it makes up for in spirit.

We’ve been to Golden many times, either to stop for a few nights during road trips or to hit the slopes at the famous Kicking Horse Mountain Resort. But even if you’re not into skiing or snowboarding, there are still plenty of fun things to do in Golden.

From adventure activities like white water rafting or walking hundreds of feet in the air on the Golden Skybridge to more relaxing experiences like exploring the downtown area and enjoying local craft beer, we promise that marking Golden off your Canada checklist will be worth your time.

Due to its prime location between mountain ranges and rivers, it’s safe to say that the views here do not disappoint. It’s also centrally located between six national parks, so it’s a great place to add to any BC itinerary. Check out our blogs to learn even more about Golden.
