The Golden Visitor Centre is located at 1000 Trans Canada Highway and will re-open in early summer 2021 for the summer season.
New measures have been implemented to ensure the safety of our counsellors and visitors including physical distancing measures, interactions via a window service, and no public access to brochure racks, amongst others. With these in place, we encourage you to visit the centre to help you make the most of your experience in Golden. During your consultation with a visitor information counsellor, a digital itinerary can be created and emailed to your personal device and printed collateral will be handed out upon request.
