Gold panning family day and Wilderness exhibition combo ticket

Duration: 8 hours / Difficulty: Easy

Available daily June-September. This combo ticket includes 2 adults and 1-3 children (4-16 years).

Guided gold panning for the whole family all day during 10:00-18:00. 

What’s included:

  • guiding in English or Finnish
  • gold panning equipment
  • All the gold you find while panning
  • a tube/vial to take home all the gold
  • Family day includes all day of gold panning for the whole family!
  • Entrance ticket to the Sompio Wilderness exhibition (open 10:00-17:00).

When you arrive at Tankavaara Gold Village, you can park your car in the parking place right in front of our restaurant and walk about 300 meters to the gold panning area where our guide will greet you. If you are unsure on where to go, you can ask our staff at the restaurant to give you a map (No worries, our restaurant is open every day).

At the gold panning site, our guide will ask to see your reservation (either on paper or from mobile phone etc.) and then borrow you some rubber boots if needed.

Then the fun can begin! Our guide will show where you, or the guide, can shovel some sand in to your gold pan and demonstrate how to separate gold from the sand in the gold panning pool. If you follow the guide’s instructions carefully and take your time learning, you might find tiny gold specks or even a bigger nugget to take home with you.

You can go visit the wilderness exhibition any time during the day between 10:00-17:00 and then return back to gold panning afterwards if you want. The plan is open, you can do both activities at your own time. The Wilderness exhibition is located about 600 meters from the gold panning site. Our staff can help you navigate Tankavaara area if needed. 

Please note that Goldmuseum entrance is not included in the combo ticket.
