Amethyst Mine Visit with Snowshoes

from 129 €
The charming national park is a great place to practice and learn snowshoeing. We will walk straight to the wilderness and up to Lampivaara. We will have a break on top of Lampivaara and visit an amethyst mine, where you can dig your own amethyst.
The tour starts with an easy 2,5 km snowshoeing trip through the snow covered forest to the Amethyst mine. A pendolino will pick us up and take us into the amethyst mine which hides many jewels. Some of them can be up to 2000 million years old. If you are lucky, you can find the most famous jewel in Lapland – the Shaman jewel! Dig your own gem stone of Lapland, the purple amethyst, during your visit to the amethyst mine.
On top of the Lampivaara hill you can admire maybe the most beautiful landscape of the area while enjoying refreshing berry juice. During the storytelling moment you will learn about this fascinating stone.

After digging your own stone we will head back through the small Luosto fell area were you can take wonderful photos of the magnificent landscapes and wilderness.
