Things to Do

Golden has activities for everyone to enjoy

Golden is the perfect year-round destination to experience and create your own adventures. 

Get out and experience our nearby six national parks (Banff, Glacier, Jasper, Kootenay, Mount Revelstoke and Yoho).  

Our three mountain ranges (Canadian Rockies, Selkirk and Purcell) have several sled zones for fantastic snowmobiling, resort skiing at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort, cat and heli skiing, Nordic skiing, ski touring, ice climbing, snowboarding during the colder months and then are transformed in the warmer months to a hiking, biking, climbing and mountaineering mecca.

During the winter our 2 historic rivers (The Columbia and Kicking Horse) are frozen but then come to life in Spring with wildlife.  Experience canoeing, paddle boarding, kayaking, rafting and fishing or just enjoy the steady flow.
