Map of Golden

Welcome to Golden!

Golden is located directly off of the Trans Canada Highway—the main highway through the Canadian Rockies. The town's frontier history is tied into both the Canadian Pacific Railway and the local logging industry. Many artifacts pertaining to these historical influences are constantly on display at the Golden Museum, where visitors can also learn more about the natural history of the region. Golden is also found within close proximity to both Yoho and Glacier National Parks, which in turn has helped transform Golden into a tourist destination. As more and more tourists drove through Golden to visit the national parks, they began to see the potential for outdoor recreation. Recent years have seen an expansion of the area's recreational services and attractions, showcased by the relatively young Kicking Horse Resort, which offers some of the best snow conditions in British Columbia. Other outdoor activities such as heli-skiing, white-water rafting, hiking and golfing are also accessible from Golden.
