Your experience


  • Enjoy a ride up the hill with the impressive snow cat
  • Marvel at your own amethyst, dig it up and take it with you
  • Let yourself be inspired by the enchanting panoramic view of nature


Explore the Finnish nature covered with pure white snow and enjoy the unique mining experience with a snow cat ride.

Leave your hotel with your guide to discover the Lampivaara Hill. You drive with a big snow vehicle, the snow cat, to reach the top of the hill (the amethyst mine). Get the tools and instructions from your professional guide to search for your own gems. Enjoy the magnificent panoramic view of the unspoilt nature of your surroundings. In the polar night, when darkness covers all of Lapland, you may have the opportunity to see the dancing northern lights in the middle of the day.

Afterwards you will descend with the amethysts in your hands and relax down by the fire. While you feel the warmth of the crackling fire, try the delicious Lapland lunch: Finnish fish soup, reindeer meat sandwich and delicious sausages.

After an all-day Lapland experience, drive back to town with your precious stones in your hand. We will drop you off at your hotel.
