Eureka! Win a Gold Nugget in Holland America’s ‘Find Your Gold’ Sweeps

In honor of the 120th anniversary of the Klondike Gold Rush, Holland America Line is launching a “Find Your Gold” sweepstakes that will award five lucky winners an authentic gold nugget valued at approximately $1,000. As the only cruise line to offer Alaska and Yukon travel, the glistening golden treasure is the prefect representation of Holland America Line’s deep connection to the region.

In 2016, the cruise line will continue to deliver exceptional experiences with 149 voyages and 248 Land+Sea Journeys to The Last Frontier. Guests who book and travel on any 2016 Yukon+Denali Land+Sea Journey will be eligible to win one of the five gold nuggets. Most Alaska Yukon+Denali Land+Sea Journey adventures feature a complimentary gold panning experience at historic Gold Dredge #8 in Fairbanks, where guests can learn about the life of a prospector and test their own skills to find the mother lode.

Guests will pan for gold on a Journeys Ashore in Yukon.

  • Jack McCarty

    The description of the cruise, the facilities, and the adventure is great. However, I don’t see any link that invites me to “enter here” or “click here to enter.” The call to action is great. The mechanism to act is missing.

  • Susan Hice

    That’s ashame- you should open it up to all of us who have done that trip!! We just did the Yukon – Denali trip and it was fabulous!!! The McKinley Chalet was absolutely wonderful !!! We had the suites down by the river – so nice – the trip was everything we could have hoped for – we ALWAYS recommend Holland America!!!!!
