What to expect
Amethyst Mine is open from Monday to Saturday until mid April. There are two guided fatbike tours per day and during the visit you will hear the stories of geology and history in addition to the properties of the gems and the uses of amethyst. You will ride to the Amethyst mine with a powerful, electrically assisted fatbike. Bliss' guide will take you to the top of Lampivaara fell (small mountain) where you can enjoy the very top view of the area, over the Pyhä-Luosto National Park. Then you will be seated in wooden shelter, sipping warm berry beverages and listening the facts and beliefs? of this fascinating purple gem stone. After the story moment you will be heading to the digging area. A part of the open digging area is covered by roof, so amethyst searching is possible also during the winter time. Each visitor will be able to dig for their own personal lucky amethyst. In the end of the visit there is some time to drop by a small “Amethyst Shop” on site. The amethyst of the area is refined into jewellery and other productions.

Great time
We tried electric fatbikes first time ever in not so optimal weather but the trip was big success. Really beautiful track around Luosto fell. We enjoyed our guides guidance and professional company also next day in Pyhä ice climbing. Big thanks to Kai and Marika!

My first expirience with a Fatbike in the snow and it was so great. When i booked the tour they told me that ur fitnesslevel can be really low. But actually thats not true. Maybe if u have -15°C and the trails are easy, but with warmer temperature it is much harder and really slippery. U need a god bodyfeeling, balance and muscularity to get up the hil, start the bike, feel secure if u fall (and u will ;)) and have the strength to go up again by urself.
My fitnesslevel is really good, so that i could enjoy the trip and i really would love to do it again :)

First time cycling on snow. Incredible experience!
Dec 2019
We had an amazing time cycling through the Pyha-Luosto National Park to the Amethyst Mine with Kai from Bliss Adventures. Kai was very experienced and prepped us for the cold by suggesting that we put on more layers for the ride! He even lent me his own gloves and cycling pant protector (which I ended up ripping :() for the journey. He was extremely encouraging, giving us tips on how to switch gears and modes (the electric bike actually makes cycling uphill a breeze when you have it on turbo mode!). Especially impressed by how patient he was even as we struggled to cycle downhill thanks to a pendolino mowing up soft snow on the way down! He even took my boyfriend cycling on a frozen lake! Also really enjoyed the amethyst mine tour and the opportunity to dig for our own amethysts. I wasn't any good but it was fun nonetheless! Overall, this is a must-try experience!

Dear Rachel, kiitos paljon, thank you so much for your kind feedback! Makes us very glad to learn that you enjoyed the e-fatbike tour to the Luosto Amethyst mine with us. You showed some good Arctic cycling spirit even though the snow wasn't the easiest on that particular day! :)
