Full description
In the early morning, meet your guide at your hotel/accommodation lobby before you are  transferred to the magical Amethyst Mines in Luosto, 100 km from Rovaniemi.

In winter time there are no open roads to Lampivaara and Amethyst Mine, so you will get onboard a special snow cat across the snowy forests, The Amethyst Pendolino.

Your tour includes a warm beverage, interesting stories about geology and history, the tales of amethyst, and digging your own lucky amethyst stone from the winter digging area.

You will be provided with professional tools and you will be assisted by professionals to dig amethysts, which you can bring home after the tour. A campfire BBQ is also included on this tour.
