Panning For Gold In Denali National Park May Yield Big!

by Denali Bear on January 21, 2013

We recently received some feedback from a couple that visited Kantishna last summer, as part of their Denali Park tour with Kantishna Wilderness Trails, and wanted to share it:

“As part of our recent Denali Wilderness Tour, we visited your Kantishna  Roadhouse. (June 2012). We were greeted warmly, provided a fantastic soup and sandwich with ice  cold lemonade, and then we were given the option of a dog sledding demonstration or panning for gold.

We opted for panning for gold, as it was on my ‘bucket list’. What a great time at we had at your place.  My wife and I may have only found 3 tiny chips of placer gold, but the memory will last a lifetime.

Thanks for a great time, great food, and great employees. One experienced woman and a new trainee helped us with our gold panning endeavors, and they were fantastic! We will recommend your place to anyone going to Alaska.”

We are so pleased that you enjoyed your trip and made such great memories. That’s what we love to hear!
