Once you arrive you will travel to Lampivaara amethyst mine with a special “snow train” called Amethyst Pendolino. The Pendolino will take you to the top of Lampivaara fell (small mountain) where you can enjoy the very top view of the area, over the national park. Then you will be seated in a wooden shelter, sipping warm berry juice and listening to the facts and stories of this fascinating purple gemstone.

The mine is a national treasure with all works being done environmentally friendly – no big machinery is used. The amethyst of Lampivaara, located in Pyhä-Luosto Lapland, Finland, was formed about 2,000 million years ago in the bowels of the ancient mountains. During the tour you will hear about the geology and history in addition to the properties of the gems and the uses of amethyst. In many cultures there are lots of different beliefs connected to amethyst.

You will even get a chance to dig for your own gemstone of Lapland during your visit to Amethyst Mine.
