Inspirock Rating:
3.4/5 based on 140+ 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.
