Welcome to the Kicking Horse River Lodge

Town of Golden

It must be some kind of a secret, because if all of you knew how great it is out here, our town population would dwarf  NYC.
Pictured:  Yet another beautiful scene in Golden. Kicking Horse Pedestrian Bridge (BTW - We have some nice mountains too.)

A Night Out On the Town


Golden is full of opportunities to enjoy a vast array of award winning flavours and fare. Our restaurants boast timber frame and log facades, renovated homes to picturesque window seated delights. From sitting on a mountaintop, enjoying a serene rural setting or immersion into melee of our downtown core, there is something for everyone. Oh, and their menus are great too!


We proudly have our own local coffee roaster and anything in between for your coffee wielding delights. Something to tantalize your taste buds to staying within your budget, our staff will recommend the best place to go, based on your needs and preferences. Our Bugaboo Cafe is open to special events and catering - please request information regarding

Sharing the day's exploits over a couple of pints and great bar food can be done in several great establishments on-hill and off.


Thursday nights, check out The Golden Taps for jam night. Be prepared for a lot of beer and toques to be roaming around socializing, foot-stomping, toe tapping and dancing. Sundays boasts a mellow local all ages jam at the Wolf's Den. These events are hosted weekly year round by our local professional musicians. Bring your instruments or just join in the fun as an audience member.


From casual to fun, from techno to themed dance parties Golden has you covered for any aged event. Check listings at Kicking Horse Chamber of Commerce's Event Calendar for more information www.goldenchamber.bc.ca


Our recently renovated LEED certified Golden Civic Centre brings in world class talent, booked by our local Art's Council - Kicking Horse Culture. You might luck on a special night to get ticket and don your 'fancier' duds for this event and make it a 'date' night - solo, couples or groups welcome.


Just remember, there is no 'dress code' in Golden. Bring yourself, your good humour and you're as well dressed as anyone expects! Enjoy!

We are located conveniently close to downtown.

If you want to head out on the town, Golden has numerous hot nightspots and restaurants are only a 10 minute walk along the river or a 5 minute taxi ride.
