Amethyst Mine Lapland, Luosto

(4/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
Find a gemstone in an active mine at Amethyst Mine Lapland. A deposit of broken rocks at the top of the hill form the hunting grounds for your own piece of the purple amethyst gemstone. Purchase tickets at the Lampivaara Cafe prior to your arrival, and if there's time you can order a hot drink here. The attraction is open in all weather conditions throughout the year; however, the entrance fee is higher in the winter to cover the cost of transport, which involves a large snowplow pulling a train carriage to the mining site. If you don't have any luck treasure hunting, stop by the shop that sells gemstones from the mine, located near the Lapland Hotel outside the attraction's entrance. Our Luosto itinerary builder makes visiting Amethyst Mine Lapland and other Luosto attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • I really recommend to reach the coffee begins the tour on foot, snowshoe or ski. It's wonderful. We have 1:30 on snowshoes from Luosto hotel. After a small café, the minor will pick you up in a small locomotive and takes you to the site. Very interesting explanations. Take clothes that will allow to crouch down you in the mine to look for stones.

  • 106 euros for a couple seem excessive enough to visit in 40 minutes a small Amethyst Mine. Wouldn't recommend it to anyone. Flunk
