Lampivaara Amethyst Mine Tours and Activities

star-4.5
6 Reviews

Created more than 200 million years ago, the Amethyst Fell of Lampivaara is one of Finnish Lapland’s most unique tourist attractions and the only active amethyst mine in Europe.

The journey to the Lampivaara Amethyst Mine is as spectacular as the destination, with visitors hiking or boarding a snowmobile and climbing through the snow-blanketed forests of the Pyhä-Luosto National Park to reach the hilltop mine. Here, visitors not only have the chance to learn about the history of the semi-precious gemstone and traditional mining techniques, but can even dig for amethysts within the mine itself. Best of all, if you find one of the semi-precious stones (provided it’s no bigger than your palm), you can keep it as a souvenir.
