Overview

Ride on a snow-cat and dig out your own Amethyst souvenir on an Arctic Amethyst Mine Tour!

Get an exclusive opportunity to visit an Amethyst mine and dig up your own Amethyst! The Lampivaara Amethyst mine is one of the few gemstone mines in the world that is open to visitors. And, despite their wide availability, amethysts have been revered for centuries. The gemstone can be found in many places, from Brazil to Africa, or even Canada and Europe. Amethysts are believed to purify your mind and give you sobriety over your emotions and impulsiveness. And, the Amethysts you’ll see during your Finland tour have been here for roughly about 2000 million years.

Ride to the Amethyst mine aboard a snow-cat, which is a truck-like vehicle that can travel on the snow. Take in the beautiful view of the Pyhä-Luosto National Park from the snow-cat as Lampivaara Hill offers a great vantage point for your Finland sightseeing. At the mine, with the help of professional diggers and tools provided, you can dig out your very own Amethyst gemstone to take home from your Finland vacation. We will descend from the Lampivaara mine and set up a fire in the forest to prepare lunch and tea. And, if you’re lucky you might even be able to catch the Northern Lights, as well. The Arctic Amethyst Mine Tour should definitely be on your list of things to do in Finland!
