Goldpanning for kids

Gold washing for children.


Guldvaskning för barn

This include:

We have a special educated instructor who  takes care of your children during a whole day. We will teach them how to pan the gold with a gold pan and a sluice box. The gold they find is theirs to bring home.

Metal detector.
We will teach the children how to use a simple metal detector. We will take them on a treasure hunt where they will find hidden object such as coins.

“Diamond” hunt
We will take the children on a “diamond” hunt so that they can find semi-precious minerals.

Light lunch.
We will grill sausages and make pancakes at the fire place together with the children.

This is how it works;

You buy the ticket for the children and bring them to our instructor. If your child is alergic to anything, you lets us know.

We take care of the children in a good and safe way and teach them gold panning, metal detecting and so forth on their own level.

Time for competition.

We will have a gold panning competition at the end of the day so the children can show you what they have learned. The winner will get a nice price and all children will get the medal.


Kids can!

Yes, your kids can much more than what you think and with help from our instructor they will be good in panning for gold, finding objects with the metal detector and finding “diamods”

Your kids will have a nice and a memorable experience.

Your kids panned gold!

Every child finds gold. And at the end of the day we put all the gold they found individually into a glass container which instantly begins to glow against the dark blue background. Now that´s what I call a really nice souvenir from Sweden!

And, what is the result of children visit here in Ädelfors?

Well, above all two things. First children  had a very fun pleasant day and they can infront of their friends show their own panned gold and brag that they realy know how to pan for gold.
