Pyhä Amethyst Mine

by pinguin_polar

You should visit Pyhä Amethyst Mine, in Pyhä-Luosto reservation, about 40 Km from Kemijärvi and 130 Km from Rovaniemi. It is a very interesting place with nice guiding, and you get to dig for your own amethyst:)

Take a snow mobiles safari in northen Lapland. You can take it in Luosto or in Ivalo, from few hours to few days. Crossing the white wilderness of lake Inari and it's area is a real great arctic adventure. The besy thing is driving alone your snow mobile. You must have a guide!!! Crossing the border to Norway and drive on the Neiden river up to the fjords. On way you pass some nice ice falls.

by inuit

Dogs sledges safaris in Lapland - a great unique way for exploring the forzen lakes and snowy forests of north Finland. The best thing are self driving tours where you can drive the sledge and your friend sitting in the sledge. Many funny moments especially in curves and crossing bridges. There is a good huskies farm not far from Luosto and also another one close to Sodankyla or close to Ivalo. You can go out an a tour which last 1 hour to 3 days.

Fable land

by tales

Amethyst Mine in Luosto, Rovaniemi where I went underground to find the ametist stone.
It was a great experience, because I had a stick iron to get the little stones inside the land. Then there was a gentle lady that accompany us in a hut, where we saw a big ametist stone with its natural powers.
We had a big white hut, a big cup of tè because it was very cold. We were in mountain. My best memory of Finland is the limpid air, the tranquillity, a particular energy in the forests, beautifull lakes ... ok the Finland remained in my heart!!!

Naturally unforgettable santa claus park!!!

Lapland, the land of the midnight sun! If you are traveling or visiting in Lapland, you should have lot of time. There are many apportunities of many different sports and activities.
In summer you can see the midnight sun and you can have your own adventure in Lapland's pure, beautiful and wild nature.
Lapland's winters are cold and dark, but very beautiful and white. Snow comes usually in October or November. The most darkest time of the year is November and December. Snow melts in May or June.
Lapland's best skiicenters are Levi (in Kittlä), Ylläs (also in Kittilä), Olos and Pallas. Luosto is in Sodankylä, but it's not so good for snowboarders.
Airports are in Kittilä, Inari and Rovaniemi.
If you want more information of Lapland or it's countys, here is couple address : www.kittila.fi, www.inari.fi, www.levi.fi. I will try to get more of them.

Travels in Northern Finland

by Angus_scot

Hi

I wondered if anyone might give me a little advice about staying in and travelling around Kemijarvi in north eastern Finland. I'm due to spend a couple of months working there in May/June of next year and would like to get as much out the trip as possible.

Anyone know anything about the town and the people?

Also, can anyone tell me how easy it is to travel in and around the area - I'm keen to see as much of the area as possible (although I will be on my own).

Hi, and never mind the mosquitos! That varies very much from year to year and location to location. (The higher you climb, the less you have mosquitos) If you start in early May, you can still get the best skiing at Pyhä of Luosto, -skiing resorts quite near Kemijärvi. The summer - and mosquitos - are due much later.
Kemijarvi has its own web-pages www.kemijarvi.fi and the bus routes you can check from www.matkahuolto.fi both pages are also in English. As for trains, from Kemijärvi you can only travel southwards. (www.vr.fi)
Luosto and Pyhä are also good for hiking - after the snow has melted. (If you have a decent bike, bring it with you)
And at that time the sun shines almost through the night, so you better get some sleep now:)

Northern Lights

by Spreeuw

Hi,

Thanks for the replies to my last question. I was wondering where the best place would be to see the Northern Lights. We were planning to base ourselves in Rovaniemi in mid-February, but would it be better to go further north and if so where? (preferably somewhere accessible by plane/train)

Thanks
Spreeuw

Re: Northern Lights

Northern Lights are most common the further north you go. Preferably above the polar circle. But there is no guaranty that you will see them. It depends upon the Sun activity at the time.

Re: Northern Lights

Hi,
Rovaniemi is fine, but of course you can see the lights better somewhere outside a town.
And if you want to do more than wait for the northern lights to show up, you might want to try one of Lappland's skiing resorts. From Rovaniemi airport there's a skibus to Pyha and Luosto. You can also fly to Ivalo and take a bus to Saariselka, or fly to Kittila and go to Levi. Levi and Saariselkä are the bigger ones of these, and they all have their own web pages (.fi) to check the activities. For flights you can check finnair's pages, and also www.flyingfinn.com. (oneway from Helsinki 49€, worth checking)

I saw Northern Light last October near Tampere, so you do not need to get as far only for this. Anyhow, Rovaniemi is exactly on the on the Polar Circle, but I think you should not expect too much, you need to be a bit lucky with the weather, you must have clear sky and this is very rare in January-February, also you need the “Sun winds” or what ever it is called (the electronic winds that creates the lights) to have the chance of seeing the lights.

Re: Northern Lights

Hi Spreeuw,

I live in North-eastern Finland, in town called Kuusamo. I have seen northern lights many times this winter. Just the other night they were absolutely fabulous ! Kuusamo is easily accessible by plane and additional information about the area you will get at www.ruka.fi.

Snowy greetings,

Re: Northern Lights

by finlandia

Hi,

The pulsating and multicoloured northern lights are born at a height of about 100 kilometers above ground level as electrically charged particles collide with the earth´s atmosphere near the magnetic poles. So you have better possibilities to see the Northern Lights in Northern Finland than in Southern Finland.

Northern lights can be seen from the beginning of September until April (but not every night). Our summertime isn´t dark enough for seeing northern lights (we have the midnight sun).

Rovaniemi is a good place to see the Northern Lights but there may be too many electric lights there.

Hotel & Igloo Village Kakslauttanen (far norther than Rovaniemi) is one of the best places for seeing the Northern Lights: http://www.travel.fi/int/Kakslauttanen/

Regards,

:) Finlandia
