A guided tour through the history of gold, its phases and stories in Finland and around the world.

The Golden Tour brings legends to life. You will hear stories about the history of gold in Ivalojoki, Lemmenjoki and Tankavaara areas and the people associated with them. Finland’s first gold rush began in 1869 in River Ivalojoki and today gold prospecting in Lapland continues as Europe’s most vibrant gold washing tradition. 

In the Golden World exhibition, under the world’s largest gold pan, our guide will introduce you the peculiarities of gold panning in different parts of the world and the gold discoveries that have changed the course of world history.
