Wintertime in Lapland is always magical but a trip to the Lampivaara Amethyst mine is a visit you will never forget.

The sustainable Lampivaara Amethyst mine is possibly the only gemstone mine in the world that welcomes visitors. The Amethyst mine is located on the top of the hill. The owner tells the story about mine and describes the process of mining. After the introduction, you will go upper to dig up the lucky amethyst for yourself, that has waited 2000 million years to be found.

During the midwinter time, when a veil of darkness covers Lapland, you may even see the Northern Lights in the middle of the day.

What to expect

After the pick up from your hotel and 1.5 hours trip you will hop on to the snow-cat, a large snow vehicle, to the Lampivaara Amethyst mine in Lapland. You will get the tools and a guidance to dig out you very own rare, hidden gemstones.

Before and after your search for the amethyst with the support of your professional guides, you can have a panoramic view of the surrounding snow-covered Lappish landscapes also because the mine is located in the border of a beautiful Pyha-Luosto national park.

Descending back down with the snowcat, you will warm yourself up around a bonfire, and prepare for a lunch in the Lappish style. Delight in tasting the Finnish fish soup, reindeer meat sandwich and sausages. Head back to the town with your own amethysts in your hands if it fits in your closed first.
