Golden Things to Do

  • Snowmobiling at Kicking Horse

    White N Wild Adventures provides the best snowmobiling tours!! I payed $250 for a full day, which included a shuttle bus from my hotel in Banff (about 2 or so hour drive), full day of snowmobiling with guided tour, hire of all the clothing and protective gear I required, snacks and hot chocolate (nicest cookies!!), and a great BBQ lunch in the...

  • Not a wolf conservation organization

    Northern Lights Wildlife Wolf CentreI thought this wolves facility would be focused on conservation and protection organization for wolves. It is a place where wolves born in captivity live when not starring in film and television projects.The tour guide does talk an educational talk about wolves and they are interesting to view. I was disappointed...

Golden Restaurants

  • Decent breakfast at ABC Restaurant

    We had breakfast at ABC in Golden before heading to Banff. The food was good, but the service was very slow and infrequent eventhough the restaurant was not very busy.Still worth it for decent food at reasonable prices. I would return to this restaurant in Golden. I had bacon, eggs, hashbrowns and pancakes. Everyone else basically had the same...

  • '50s Style Diner

    I read some reviews of this place after going there. Many commented that the service was sub par and that the food was that of a greasy truck stop. I have no idea what those people were talking about. Our service what quite nice and prompt. The restaurant is a diner, so people should know what they are getting... its good food, but diner food.The...

  • Spoilt for choice!

    We dined at The Turning Point Restaurant when we stayed in Golden for one night on our way through from while driving from Banff to Vancouver. It was early evening on a week night in early May so the place was pretty quiet. The menu is very extensive, to say the least, and has something to suit all tastes. I can't remember exactly what we had but I...

    River Rafting

    by hokeypokey Written Oct 7, 2003

    White Water Rafting is one of the fun sports to do here. The companies take you on tours of different lenghts and degrees of difficulty, rafting the Kicking Horse River.
    At certain points you can take the chance, jump into the water and float along and over currents. Even though also in mid-summer the water is only about 4°C it´s worth the fun.

    Equipment: All gear is supplied by the companies. But you can bring your own teewah`s if you like. Otherwise they´ll have wetsuits, slippers and lifevests ready for you.

  • One of the Best Places in Canada

    My favourite thing about golden is the overall natural beauty of it and the laid back atmosphere. You really just have to get out and meet the people in the town, very friendly with a very laid back approach to life. Combine this with the overall scenery and it's a place thats tough to beat.

  • Don't Forget Insurance

    If your current health insurance doesn't cover you while your abroad, you should consider getting international travel insurance just in case something should go wrong.
