  • Love the old fashion golddigging/cowboy style and the people is so nice. The prospectorburger is the best in the world!!!
  • Although the water is very cold when you are having the finding gold experience, but it's fun and interesting. Have restaurant around with nice food.
  • Nice way to try to dig gold
  • The museum tells about gold panning in Lapland and the mining for gold around the world. It is most interesting to try your luck with the sand yourself. Under professional supervision every one in our party successfully retrieved gold specks to take home as souvenirs!
  • Lots of information of the Finnish gold prospecting.
