Golden BCAmid massive mountains, luxuriant forests, alpine meadows, and vibrant wetlands is the Town of Golden.  With a population of nearly 4000, it is located at the junction of the Trans-Canada Highway (Hwy 1) and Highway 95. If you’re travelling on Hwy 1 Golden is 148 km (92 miles) east of Revelstoke and 79 km (49 miles) west of Lake Louise.  Travelling on Hwy 95 you’ll find Golden 102 km (63.5 miles) north of Radium Hot Springs.

Golden’s development began with the coming of the Canadian Pacific Railroad in the mid-1880s.  It linked the railroad with the steamship traffic of the Columbia River.  Golden still flourishes but today because it is in the centre of 5 national parks (Yoho, Jasper, Banff, Rocky Mountain, and Glacier), is internationally acclaimed for white water rafting and hang-gliding, and is just 13 km (8 mi.) from the Whitetooth Ski area.  Outdoor enthusiasts also enjoy heli-skiing, ice climbing, mountaineering, horseback riding, bicycling, and kayaking. 

Columbia River at GoldenThe town offers a great assortment of shops and restaurants, accommodations as varied as campgrounds, rustic mountain lodges, and modern inns with jacuzzis, air-conditioning, and cable TV.  Golden has lots of in town hiking paths and a great riverside park.  The Golden and District Museum features an early log school and a blacksmith’s shop. 

Golfers will enjoy the 18-hole course that whose 14th hole is home to a pair of eagles.  Naturalists consider Golden an excellent vantage point for birdwatching and viewing wildlife. 

The local events include the Vintage Car Show ‘n’ Shine in June, the Mud Bog in June, the Golden Rodeo in August and the Hang-gliding and Para-gliding Championships in August.
