Golden: At the heart of 6 national parks.

At the heart of it.

Sitting in the Canadian Rockies, Golden B.C. is surrounded by six of Canada’s most stunning national parks; Yoho, Glacier, Banff, Jasper, Kootenay and Mount Revelstoke. Golden’s unique location is made even more special in 2017 as Parks Canada, in celebration of the 150th anniversary of Canadian Confederation, is offering free admission to all national parks.

Use Golden as your base from which to experience the spectacular scenery, iconic hiking trails, waterfalls, lakes and heritage sites of the national parks. Visit Yoho National Park, known as a hiker’s paradise and home to the stunning turquoise waters of Emerald Lake, the impressive waterfalls of Takakkaw and Wapta. Witness railway history at the Spiral Tunnels. Head west to Glacier National Park to discover some of Canada’s unique mountain heritage and spectacular natural beauty from park hiking trails, day use areas and Rogers Pass Discovery Centre.
