The experience

This year the camp is far up in the river delta. It takes us 3 hours to get there after we leave the cars and start the ATV`s. The nature is pure and wild.

We are going to pan in one of the gold hotspots in Norway. We have several camps in the area. The gold panning area of Karasjok has  long tradition of panning after gold. Karasjok is called the sami capitol and make up the hart of Sami core area.

The landscape here is one of rolling hills, with low-lying ridges, lakes, rivers and marshes. You are going to the land of the extremes, a land of the midnight sun and the aurora borealis. During the winter, the lowest temperatures are often recorded up here (the record is -52), but a dry climate ensures regular views of the Northern Lights. During the summer, the temperature sometimes reaches tropical highs (the record is 34).

On this trip you have a one of Norway’s best gold diggers with you as a guide, mentor and chef. He is a skilled man of the nature and has years of experience with trips like this. He is going to make sure that you are safe, give you the local stories and make sure the most out of the trip. You will sleep in military tents, eat food made on the fire and wash gold in one of the most remote areas of Scandinavia.

This trip has a 100% gold guarantee. In the surroundings it is possible to fish for trout and other fish. Trout over 2 kilos has become a standard on the trips.

We provide with most of the gear, but we recommend that you take a sleeping bag, proper clothing for the seasonal weather and whatever you normally would take on a camping trip of personal belongings. If you have some questions about this, do not hesitate to take contact.

The last night a lot of our guest wanted to stay at the hotel in the city of Karasjok (link), if this is something you would like, then I have to inform that this is a extra free on this. We can help you with the booking if you like.
