The Lampivaara Amethyst Mine is a fascinating travel destination located 120 kilometers away from Rovaniemi. The amethysts of Lampivaara fell were born 2 000 million years ago, deep in the bowels of the ancient mountains.

During the guided tour you will learn about the geology that created the amethyst, their properties, the history of the mine and some of the uses of amethyst.

After the tour, each visitor will be able to try their hand at digging for their own personal lucky amethyst!

At the end of the visit there will be some time to visit the small Amethyst Shop on site.

Please note: The closest parking area is located approximately 2 kilometers from the mine. It takes 45 minutes to walk through the forest to the mine and the same time to walk back again, so please wear comfortable shoes. This tour is not recommended for people with moving disabilities.

Transfer from the Arctic Circle Wilderness Resort is included in the price (1-8 persons).
