Visit three generations of the Millar family at their working placer goldmine. Your friendly guide will take you right onto the mine site to learn how gold is deposited by nature and extracted by man.
Tour the original Goldbottom Roadhouse and discover what other treasures frozen in time are sometimes uncovered. Gain insights into the day-to-day life of a modern miner and hear of fortunes made and failures endured. Learn how raw gold is concentrated, cleaned and worked with, and then experience the thrill of panning for your own gold from the very same pay dirt that is being sluiced.
The miners' main camp is located at the picturesque convergence of Hunker and Goldbottom Creeks, 25 kilometers from Dawson City. Tours depart twice daily, May to September, from Front Street, and can be customized for special groups upon request.

Guided half-day and longer trips, both in the Southern Lakes region and throughout the Yukon, are based on specific interests like history, wildlife or photography, and follow seasonal rhythms.
