Prospecting Vacations

Biggest online listings of prospecting vacation locations. If you want to look for Gold or Gems, this is the place to find your adventure!

Welcome!

Thank you for visiting ProspectingVacations.com

To find a gold or gem vacation spot, click on the Gold Prospecting or Gem Hunting menu and select your location. I have them listed by State or International. All locations that I have been able to find on the net are listed. If you know of a vacation spot (that has a website) please let me know, I’m always looking to add more.

If you go on a prospecting vacation, please come back and let us know how it was. Don’t forget to take plenty of pics and video!

Thanks and have a great vacation,
-Dan

P.S. Please be aware, I do not have an affiliation with any of the locations listed here. Please contact each location from their listed website. Thanks -Dan

New GEM Location!

Geology Adventures

I found a new gem site that is a little different than all the rest. Bob Jackson takes people out on gem finding adventures all over the world! He’s based in Washington but does quite a few tours outside the state. He has a schedule up on his website, and space is limited on his tours!

Looking for used/inexpensive gold toys?

Hey! The GPAA has set up a classifieds section on their website just for selling or buying prospecting equipment. Looking for a deal on a new metal detector or dredge? Check it out!

Here’s a nice little tale of what persistence will get you. Sometimes you come home with nothing but black sand and trash. Sometimes you come home a winner!
