The Golden, BC Fall Adventure Guide

The days are getting shorter and the air is more crisp than balmy…but that doesn’t mean it’s too late to get away. If you’re asking us, fall travel is underrated; the summer crowds have migrated back to school and work, off-season pricing is in effect, and there’s still enough warmth and daylight—not to mention autumn leaves—to make the most of the outdoors.

If you’ve ever been to Golden before, you’ll be well versed in the merits of this easy going mountain town. Four hours east of Kamloops and two and a half hours west of Calgary, Golden is flanked by three different mountain ranges, and surrounded by no fewer than six national parks. We’re not being trite when we say it is an outdoor lover’s wonderland. Despite this, Golden escapes the crowds and tourist trappings that sometimes plague mountain towns. Painted in charm and populated by passionate, outdoor-advocating locals, it just might be B.C.’s best-kept secret. And in fall, you won’t have to stand in a single line to enjoy it.
