Why locals love it

The Gold Panners with their friends and audiences gather at Tankavaara's traditional Gold Panning Championships in the middle of Sodankylä's brightest summer. Follow the real gold pegs in real action and see skillful panning-school handling as gold pins are feverishly sought in the waters of the legendary gold lands of Tankavaara.

Why you should visit it

The venue of the Tankavaara Gold Village is unparalleled. There is an authentic golden rush atmosphere in the village. Hunger and thirst are overcome by Wanha Waskoolimies Restaurant and Wild West Saluuna. Also learn about the history of gold mining and gold rush at the magnificent Tankavaara Gold Museum.
