Take a GOLD MINE ADVENTURE TOUR ($45/person, 3hrs)
Just a short distance from Barkerville and Wells lay the some of the richest gold gravels in BC! We will we transport you to a tour of working Gold mines on Historic Gold Rush mine claims. Today, with modern equipment, miners open up these old mine sites, often uncovering buried tunnels, and old mining artifacts such as picks, shovels, and even clothing and candles. When they find sections of unworked, or virgin gravels, the sluice boxes can turn yellow with gold. Some days as much as 100 ounces of gold have been recovered!
However, Cariboo Placer Mining is more than an industrial process, it is a step back into a hidden time and place. Our partners are as committed to protecting and recording as much of this buried history, as they are they are in recovery the gold that motivated the seekers! Become a part of history as we inspect mines from past and present, and try our luck at the most famous claim in the Cariboo. More details at Whitegold Adventures
Gold Mine Tours $49/person plus gst. (children under 12 ½ price!, when accompanied by an adult). back to top
7 SUMMITS BIKE AND HIKE CHALLENGE
Every fall we sponsor a full day mountain event called the 7 Summits. It was spawned, some years ago, from a challenge we put to residents and visitors. Climb 7 day hikes, collect a bead from each summit cairn and return to the Bear's Paw for a free piece of Cranberry Carrot Cake and a cup of tea! From that grew our one day event. Hike and Bike over 7 Summits, in 7 Stages, over 7,000 feet of elevation gain and do it all in one day! This popular event is meant to be hard but acheivable. It attracts participants from across BC and every age. All participants and volunteers rate it as one of the best outdoor events of their lives!
