Golden lies at the confluence of two heritage rivers, with the Rocky Mountains to the east, and the Dogtooth Range of the Purcell Mountains to the west. The town features world-class vacation rentals, and is a gold mine of year-round outdoor recreations. Thanks to its proximity to six stunning National Parks, including Banff, Glacier, Jasper, Kootenay, Mount Revelstoke, and Yoho, Golden offers winter and summer activities to outdoor enthusiasts of all ages. Downhill skiing and snowboarding, backcountry skiing, cross-country skiing, heli-skiing, and snowmobiling are popular winter pastimes. In the summer, it is common to see hikers in the parks, swimmers at Cedar Lake, in addition to paragliders, white-water rafters, and wildlife viewers. Walkers, runners, and bikers favour the town’s Rotary Trail, and often venture across the Kicking Horse River on Canada’s longest freestanding timber frame bridge. After exploring the town and parks’ many offerings, grab a bite to eat at Canada’s highest elevation eatery—the aptly named Eagle’s Eye Restaurant—before retiring to a lovely Golden cabin rental.+ More
