Visit Amethyst Mine

Visit Amethyst Mine

Duration: 9 hours / Difficulty: Easy

We will meet you in front of the selected meeting point (Visit Levi Office/Hullu Poro Hotel or Zero Point) at approximately 9am in the morning. 

There is a long journey ahead of us as we begin the trip towards the National Park and the Amethyst mine. As the trip takes about two hours we might have a need to make some quick stops along the way to stretch our legs.
As we reach the Lampivaara parking we will resume our trip by walking through the beautiful National Park towards the museum and the mine. The walking trail is about 45 minutes long. It is easy to walk on the trail but we are going slightly upwards so be prepared for it. The Amtehyst mine is situated in the middle of the National park. We will be given a guided tour and we will learn all about the magical stone, how it is born, about the history and the geology plus the beliefs about the stone all around the world. We will make quite a trip through time during the tour around the museum and learn about facts taken place millions of years ago! We are also able to dig and find ourselves our own lucky stone to take along as a memory of the visit. The duration of the tour is approximately one and half hours. There is also a Little StoneShop from where one can purchase stones and art made of the stone.

After the visit we will have light lunch at the cafeteria of the museum, walk back to the bus and resume our trip back to Levi. The trip will take us about two hours.

If You are interested of the birth stories and the ancient beliefs of this magical and beautiful Stone- this trip is worth it!
