Golden

4
Shining from its nook in the Rocky Mountain Trench, the town of Golden lives up to its name, with memorable scenery at every turn. While the town was once reliant on the logging industry, and the business brought by the Canadian Pacific Railway, Golden tourism has begun to realize its potential and play a major part in the town's economy. Nestled enviably between five national parks, the mountain town serves as a well-resourced base for a wide range of outdoor activites, such as river rafting, ice climbing, and even heli-skiing. Visitors looking for a completely wild experience can stay at remote resorts accessible only by helicopter. Golden is in Kootenay Rockies. Arrange all the small, but important details of your Golden trip itinerary using our Canada tour builder tool .

Where to stay in Golden

For convenience and proximity to local shops, stay at one of the lodges or bed and breakfasts located within the grid-like streets of the town center. If you want a bit more space to enjoy the natural settings, look out of town to nearby Edelweiss, where you'll find a range of inns and lodges just off the Trans-Canada Highway. If skiing is your main game, look west along Kicking Horse Trail, where you can stay at the base of the nearby ski gondolas.
