Gold Panning Every Saturday

These tours are now fully booked for the remainder of the season – Apologies for the inconvenience

We’ve seen the movies, identified the ‘prospector’, imagined the thrill of striking GOLD!

Now is your opportunity to travel to the Vale of Avoca, “one of Europe’s most beautiful locations”and try your hand at some river panning for Gold

We can’t promise a large nugget of gold of the 22 oz variety which, local legend has it, was found in this valley and made into a snuff box for King George VI, but there’s gold in Wicklow still! In fact gold has just been rediscovered in the Avoca area by a large mining company, with a view to mining it in the near future.
