Amethyst Mine is located close to holiday resorts of Luosto and Pyhä. 

Nature around Lampivaara Amethyst Mine is great all year round, as we are inside one of our large National Park, Pyhä-Luosto.

Due to reason that we are located in National Park, please notice that private motoring is not allowed. Local taxis and charter coaches may drive along service road. In winter time this is not possible as there is no open road during winter time.

The summer walking route is an illuminated ski track during winter time. Please notice walking along ski track (not even with snowshoes) is not allowed. You can anyhow also walk to Amethyst Mine along service road. It maybe snowy and you need reasonable physical condition, it takes about 45 minutes for walking from Ukko-Luosto to Lampivaara Café. During summer the route from Ukko-Luosto to Lampivaara café is easy to go with strollers.

Dogs are the most welcome to the Amethyst mine, just remember to keep them on leash.
