3 hours
from 172 €
Experience an exciting and unique activity in Lapland. Ride to the top of the Lampivaara fell and dig for your very own lucky Lappish gem!
The Amethyst Mine is open from Monday to Saturday until mid April. There are two guided fatbike tours per day. During the visit you will hear the fascinating stories about geology and history in addition to the properties of the gems and the uses of amethyst.

You will ride inside the Amethyst mine with a powerful, electrically assisted fatbike. Our guide will take you to the top of Lampivaara fell (small mountain) where you can enjoy the very top view of the area, over the Pyhä-Luosto National Park. Then you will be seated in a wooden shelter, sipping warm berry beverages and listening the facts and beliefs​ of this fascinating purple gem stone.

After the story moment you will be heading to the digging area. A part of the open digging area is covered by a roof, so amethyst searching is possible also during the winter time. Each visitor will be able to dig for their own personal lucky amethyst.

At the end of the visit there is some time to drop by a small “Amethyst Shop” on site. The amethyst of the area is refined into jewelry and other products.
