Saying that Golden is in one of the most perfect and beautiful locations in the world might sound like a grandiose statement, but it’s not so outrageous once you look at the facts… and look out the window.Golden is situated just below the Rocky Mountains on the north end of the Columbia River Wetlands – an area 180 kilometres in length that supports over 300 species of birds and mammals. Coming from the east, Golden is the provincial gateway to British Columbia and the majestic Purcell and Selkirk Mountains. Coming from the west, Golden is the gateway to the Canadian Rocky Mountains. Golden is close to six of the most stunning National Parks Canada has to offer: Banff, Glacier, Jasper, Kootenay, Mount Revelstoke and Yoho. These parks offers some of the best scenery and outdoor recreation adventure opportunities available anywhere in the world.
Ask any local their favourite thing about Golden, and chances are they’ll say ‘climate.’ Golden has four very distinct seasons, each with their own virtues: Spring is a bright and renewing season – the perfect time to shed those long johns and get out for a hike; summer is a time for long, hot summer days ideal for mountain biking , rafting or kayaking; fall is a crispy cornucopia of brisk, fresh temperatures with clear views of stunning peaks that give way to a magical winter season that boasts some of the driest and most abundant champagne powder. Winter also brings world-class skiing, riding and snowmobiling.
Golden is a vibrant, rapidly diversifying town with a profound sense of community spirit. With tourism playing an increased role in its personality, Golden is attracting people who want to experience a real, authentic B.C. community in a natural, unspoiled mountain setting.
