Golden is situated at the confluence of the Kicking Horse and Columbia Rivers in traditional Ktunaxa territory. Close to six stunning national parks, Golden boasts summer, winter and family-friendly outdoor activities and is a base from which to explore the Rocky Mountains.


The historic downtown itself has many great restaurants, a bustling music scene, a summer farmer’s market and the famous Kicking Horse Pedestrian Bridge – the longest freestanding timber-frame bridge in Canada.
