Gold Mine Safari Tours

Two Mines... Too Much Fun!


Scenic Mountain Gold Mine Tour

Are you ready for a journey that is completely different from anything you have ever experienced? We are committed to delivering experiences that will make your Alaska visit the vacation of a lifetime!

Hop aboard our 6x6 Austrian made Pinzgauers for a unique Alaskan back country experience. This guided tour is exciting but geared as a “Slow and Easy” tour that is meant for just about everyone!

Travel up the scenic Iditarod Trail to Crow Creek Mine, a National Historic Site. Enjoy a walking tour of the mine and wander thru one hundred year old buildings and antiques surrounded by manicured lawns and flower gardens. Your guides will be a wealth of history as they interpret the deep mining history as well as the bountiful flora and fauna of the area. Crow Creek Mine is a beautiful location that is frequently used for weddings, film shoots and private functions.

Climb back aboard the Pinzgauer and travel further up the Iditarod Trail to a private, active gold mining operation where scenic trails and stunning overlooks offer breathtaking views. This mine is located high up in the alpine growth of the Chugach Mountains where 7000” mountain peaks surround you. View hanging glaciers and possible wildlife sightings such as moose, bear, goats and sheep. Your guide is an expert at finding these animals using binoculars and spotting scopes. Your guide will explain more of the fascinating gold mining history that dates back to the turn of the century.

This is where you will get a feel for the off road capabilities of the Pinzgauer as we do some exciting six-wheel trail riding! Your guide will drive along stunning trails that will make your Alaskan experience a one of a kind experience.;
