Amethyst Mine Lapland, Luosto
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.

We have booked for a Snowmobile Ride to Amethyst Mine with Lapland Safaris guided by Mr. Petri. I wore overall snow gear and Helmet provided by Lapland Safaris. The journey was beautifully snow white ... more »
We rode in Pendolino through deep snow from a parking lot to the mine. A guide told us very interesting (!) stories about the mineral, the mine and also related myths. After we digged up amethysts from the mine's surface, we returned in Pendolino the same way.
After joyful walk in the national park full of amazing autumn colors you arrive to the nice tiny caffe where you may get some hot drink before going to hunt your treasure. Your guide tells you a cool (also literally) story of the amethysts, the mine, Lapland and Earth. And then amethyst rush begins! You get your equipment and go digging. You have a good chance to find real treasure in the real field conditions and keep it. 😋 There is also a tiny store for lazy visitors. We really enjoyed the time.
