Juneau Gold Panning and Salmon Bake Adventure
Tour Participation Requirements
Visit Gold Creek, the site of the area's first gold mining quests, with an expert guide. There you'll learn about the area's rich history, and work up an appetite as you get down in the water to pan for gold. After learning a few techniques from the pros, you're guaranteed to find your very own gold, which you'll take home with you.
Once you've had your fill of gold hunting, you're off to Salmon Creek waterfall and spawning stream for a fresh, wild salmon bake, where the salmon are as wild as it gets. Enjoy your meal and your surroundings accompanied by the sounds of local musicians.
When you're full and happy, take an easy stroll to the Salmon Creek waterfall and enjoy the pristine natural surroundings while your food digests. You may also relax with your fellow diners around a campfire and toast marshmallows while sharing stories of your travels.
What's in a name?
Although the city of Juneau is named after prospector Joe Juneau, it was Tlingit Chief Kowee who should probably be credited with one of the most significant American gold discoveries. Besides the fact that Juneau and his partner, Richard Harris, were known for trading their provisions with the natives for hoochinoo, or homebrew, it was Chief Kowee who pointed them in the right direction – leading them straight to the gold!
