Arctic Tundra & Dawson City | naturally wild

Enjoy Yukon’s most charming cities, the capital of the Yukon, Whitehorse and a small town in the North with a huge personality - Dawson city, unlike any place on earth. On our road trip to Dawson City you will be accompanied by a fascinating landscape. Often described as a living museum, Dawson City’s boardwalk-lined streets contain many attractions and historical artifacts, back from the gold rush. Try your luck at Diamond Tooth Gerties, a unique casino with cabaret-style entertainment of the gold rush era and explore the history of all famous writers like Robert Service, Jack London and Pierre Berton. Are you ready to pan for gold in the rivers and creeks surrounding Dawson? We will bring you to an active gold mine outside of town. To continue your Yukon adventure we’ll go right into the heart of the Tombstone mountains, where you will be surrounded by an epic, colorful scenery and pristine wildlife.

Same as everywhere else that caters to the tourist gold panning experience. Still a good holiday moment, found a few pieces of gold and then my wife got a locket and put both lots inside so looks really nice.

We stopped by to take a look at all the old artifacts lying about. Watched some kids gold panning in a table top pool. We didn't bother. I am sure actually going out to a gold panning site would be more appealing for us adults. We did not have time to do that but did enjoy stopping by Claim 33. A bit of history for sure.

I wasn't going to visit Claim 33 ... thought it might be some kind of hokey tourist attraction. Boy, was I wrong. Gold panning is a real skill, and Robin, our host, was an excellent teacher. Everyone gets a gold pan full of gravel that's been seeded (Robin would say "enhanced") with a few small flakes of gold. The trick is to separate the wheat from the chaff, i.e. the gold from the gravel. This helped me to understand the nature of gold itself and the technology that's used to harvest it. Fascinating!

Went gold panning at claim 33! Everyone came away with a few bits of gold. There must be so much to be found still in the Yukon.

It was a very interesting experience to be given a pan of pay dirt, for us to work through, at the sluice box. This is NOT easy. Our short experience certainly gives us newfound respect for the dedication, hard work and tireless efforts of the early gold panners. It is incredulous that most of them did this for months, if not years. Their resolution to strike gold is indeed commendable. Most of us will end up with a few flakes of tiny gold, so be persistent and work through finishing your pay dirt. You can then pay for your 'rich' findings to be encased in pendants or earrings. Otherwise, they keep them in a plastic vial for you to take home. Do try this fun and 'rewarding' attraction to partake of a Yukon Gold rush experience, albeit for a few 'back- breaking' minutes only. Helen Lim Singapore
