Relive Juneau's gold rush history by panning for gold. A costumed prospector will drive you to historic Last Chance Basin. Retrace the route used by Joe Juneau and Richard Harris in their search for gold. Near the famous Alaska-Juneau gold mine, one of the world's largest hard rock mining operations, you'll have a chance to pan for gold. See the remnants of the mine and learn about the discovery of gold here and how it was mined. Then at the Gold Creek Salmon Bake, wild Alaskan caught salmon is grilled over an open alderwood fire. Enjoy the Gold Rush Potatoes, Cheechako baked chicken, Chilkoot baked beans, Tongass wild-rice pilaf, a variety of fresh salads, corn bread, blueberry cake, and lemonade, coffee or tea. Beer and wine are available for an additional charge. Dine beside Salmon Creek, nestled in the lush foliage of Southeast Alaska's rainforest, under translucent domes that protect you rain or shine. Afterwards, roast marshmallows over a crackling campfire and view the beautiful Salmon Creek waterfall; remnants of the historic Wagner Mine can also be seen. Return to your ship at your leisure aboard one of the Salmon Bake shuttle buses.

Please note: The salmon served is always wild Alaskan Salmon. This tour operates in all weather conditions.
