Golden

4.3
River Rafting & Tubing · Ski Areas · Wildlife Areas
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. Use our Canada vacation builder tool to arrange the details of your trip to Golden and other destinations.
