Package Itinerary

Get your own amethyst on top of the hill with a stunning view of Lappish nature, and enjoy your lunch at the open fire.

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 the 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. Of course, you will be provided with special equipment and snow-cat lift you on the hill. During the midwinter time, when a veil of darkness covers Lapland, you may even see the Northern Lights in the middle of the day.

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. You will get the tools and a guide to dig out your 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 on 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 lunch in the Lappish style. Delight in tasting the Finnish fish soup, reindeer meat sandwich, and pork sausages. Head back to the town with your own amethysts in your hands if it fits in your closed first.
