Golden is a unique mountain town that offers year round adventures and activities.
For guests who are going to be visiting us this summer at our Golden location at 1049 Trans-Canada Hwy, we have compiled a list of 5 things to do in Golden this summer.
- Raft Down the Kicking Horse River
Test your nerves and raft down this famous river while you’re in Golden.
- Go Horseback Riding in the Rockies
Situated between three different mountain ranges and also close to six national parks, Golden is a great place to explore the mountain trails. We recommend horseback riding in the Rocky Mountains.
- Float the Columbia River
Given that Golden is located between three mountain ranges, it is no surprise that the city is within the confluence of two rivers – the Kicking Horse River and the Columbia River. Take a leisurely float on the Columbia after your Kicking Horse Adventure.
- Walk the Longest Freestanding Pedestrian Bridge on the Continent
Kicking Horse Pedestrian Bridge over the Kicking Horse River is the longest freestanding pedestrian bridge in all of North America. Take a stroll across it while you’re in town.
- Skydive Between Two Mountain Ranges
The lovely people at Tourism Golden attest that Golden is “the only place where you can skydive between two mountain ranges”, so make sure to add this one to your BC bucket list.
Whatever you have planned, we look forward to welcoming you to Golden!
