When you think of Alaska, what do you imagine? Soaring mountains and spawning salmon as you wander through the wilderness? A land with a long history of crazy dangerous jobs from gold miner to deep sea crab fisherman? Well, here’s a tour to give you a glimpse into that idyllic Alaska you’ve imagined. The Gold Panning & Salmon Bake combines a delicious feast of fresh Alaskan salmon, a realistic gold panning experience, and a chance to explore the Alaskan rainforest, in one of the best excursions in Juneau.

What to expect and what not to expect with this Juneau shore excursion

Begin this historical Gold Panning & Salmon Bake experience with pick up from downtown Juneau (right by your cruise docks) and a narrated tour through the area on your way to “Last Chance Basin.” Here you will see prospectors in traditional attire, and will learn just how gold panning is done from your personal prospector/guide. The banks of Gold Creek make for a serene Alaskan setting while you search the stream for your chance to strike gold. And when you do come across some, you get to keep everything you find! So get searching.
