Polar Night Treasures

Lampivaara Amethystmine is located on the top of a fell in middle of Pyhä-Luosto National Park.  The mine operates according to sustainable principles, no big machines are used. The view from the mine site opens to horizon over 70 kilometers away in all directions.  Statistically the season around and after Autumn Equinox is favorable for seeing Northern Lights.
