Gold Country Communities Society, Gold Country, BC

Our Story

Gold Country is spectacular sunrises and sunsets over lakes, mountains, meadows, and canyons; over rugged semi-desert landscape and sweeping expanses of emerald-green forest; over endless fields of golden grassland and the roar of river rapids. It’s a region where every turn of the road brings the promise of breath-taking new vistas, and where hidden treasures are waiting to be discovered.

Between every sunrise and sunset you’ll find a wealth of things to do, see, and enjoy, creating memories to last a lifetime. The possibilities are as endless as the Gold Country sky.

The rich fields of Gold Country produce sweet, tantalizing fruits, vegetables, honey, ciders and wines.  Sit in a garden filled with fragrant blossoms and enjoy a local grown and freshly prepared tasty meal.

Gold Country is steeped in culture and history.  Pick up a walking tour guide to super impose the current stories over the old.  Step into a museum and have the locals help you reveal the tales of the characters of our past.

We LOVE to celebrate!  Our calendar is full of art, music, food, culture, entertainment and FUN!  Be certain to check out our online calendar of events to be certain you aren’t missing out.

Watch for Wildlife

Deer bounding in the meadow, moose sauntering into the marsh to cool off, coyotes howling to the night, wild horses grazing, bears feasting on wild berries… This is a mere glimpse of the creatures that reside in the scenic areas of Gold Country.

Cast a line

The tug on the line as you plant your feet deeper into the rocks lining the banks of the river bed, a flash of silver leaps from the rushing water and the surge of excitement races through your veins.  Create your own fish story today!

Get on Two Wheels

As you make that turn around the bend, the enchanting surroundings will entice you to pull over to pause, to embrace the serenity of this perfect moment.

Immerse yourself in the Aboriginal Culture

Bright colors flash and feathers fan a whisper with the movement of the dancers as they move to the beat of the pow wow drum.  Fresh caught salmon sizzles on the grill and the aroma of freshly baked bannock submerge your senses even further to make this an unforgettable cultural experience.

Swing some Clubs

Line up your driver, prepare for the swing and as you look to the hole before you, you capture a glimpse of the Gold Country sky, all your cares disappear, you take the shot which lands on the green and descends into the hole.  It is just another day in golfers’ paradise.

Look to the Skies

Relax for the evening and watch the sunset.  Brilliant hues of pinks, oranges and yellows that light up the sky with a truly electric glow.  And that’s just the first act of our elaborate night sky theatre…… Star gazing in Gold Country will give you a lasting memory of the ethereal.
