Ghosts & Gold (3.5 hours)
Tucked away in the streets of Juneau you'll find historical buildings and remnants of the gold mining era. Following the footsteps of miners, you’ll walk the same paths into the mountains. Visit the Last Chance Mining Museum, which includes the history of Alaska Juneau Gold Mining Company, founded in 1912. It holds the world’s largest air compressors and other artifacts used in hard rock gold mining. Learn about the miners who tunneled through the mountains and are still heard today, searching for gold. Dip a gold pan into Gold Creek and test your hand at striking it rich. Head back to town for a final stop at Alaskan Hotel and Bar, the oldest operating hotel in Alaska. (It’s said to be haunted!) Enjoy a beer flight on us and share stories with your guide.
