Gold prospecting – book your place

Are you curious to hear more about the stories and experiences of the real gold prospectors? Feeling adventurous? Or would you just like to have a nice and exciting day outdoors with your friends and family?

On claims of Team Deadwood ry, just around the corner from Tankavaara Gold Village, we offer you a chance to experience it all. The location of the claim is considered very family-friendly, as it is not far away from the services of the hotel and restaurant. Reservations and further information: Marko Lauronen, email
