Dredge No. 4 stands 18 meters high amid the rough and rugged Klondike Gold Fields on Claim #17.

Take a guided tour through the interior of this massive machine with Parks staff and discover the evolution of Placer mining-from early pioneers unearthing gold-bearing gravel by hand, to large scale corporate gold-digging machines forever altering the landscape.  Tours must be booked at the Visitor Centre ahead of time.

$14.70 at the Visitor’s Centre. Tours start at Dredge No. 4; (20 km SE of Dawson City). (1 hr)
Parks Canada offers programming from May to September.  For the most up to date information on our programs please visit the Parks Canada website.
