Amethyst Mine Lapland, Luosto

(3.4/5 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.

  • Nothing that the journey to reach the mine's worth (transport in snow in the hills. Do not have sea-sick, however!) Greeted with a hot drink a presentation time, then down the mine. A little disappointed due to not get out of the small pieces while one expects out of large rooms as in the presentation, but the experience itself was original. Price a little expensive compared to what we get out, but the entire experience was nice all the same. (just disappointed to have "thrown" the rest of my stones, while I learned then that I could buy them for cheap) A test
