Historic Gold Mine Tour

Travel the scenic Turnagain Arm to the late 1800’s and the back roads to Crow Creek Mine. Nestled in a valley with a beautiful creek, this picturesque landscape, the original gold settlement camp, gold miner cabins, and equipment from the hydraulic placer mine days. This tour is NOT a trough style tour. We are going right down into Crow Creek so guests are required to have gloves and waterproof shoes or rain boots to be comfortable on this tour. We will demonstrate a sluice box, panning style technique and try our hand at finding gold! We will also talk extensively on the use of dog sled teams (and the Iditarod) on this tour so guests can realize the connection the dog sled teams of the past had with these mining camps in remote Alaska. 

 Rates: $199 per adult (no child rate)
