Join us to this exciting guided tour to Amethyst Mine located in Lampivaara. The Lampivaara Amethyst Mine is a fascinating travel destination all year round!

The amethysts of Lampivaara fell were created two billion years ago, deep in the bowels of the ancient mountains. The amethyst mine is open every day between June and September, in October and in winter it is open from Tuesday to Saturday. During the guided tour you will learn about the geology that created the amethysts, their properties, the history of the mine and some of the uses of amethyst. After the tour, each visitor will be able to try their hand at digging for their own personal lucky amethyst!
