for schools

Dear teacher, bring your class to a treasure hunting tour in Ylämaa! Besides the joy of discovering, your students will have a great opportunity to learn  useful information through seeing and experiencing with their own eyes and hands.

You may consider a programme with some or all of the following alternatives:  gem village with its gem museum (and shops), spectrolite quarry, Pätäri farmhouse museum and Salpalinja fortification line connecting geography with history. Students may eat their packed lunches in the beautiful environment of the quarry or maybe buy an ice cream at the end of the tour. A low-cost lunch can also be arranged if requested.

We provide teachers with a package containing a booklet called “Kiviopas” (guidebook to Finnish stones), a quiz to be held later in school and some Brazilian gemstones to be distributed to the students who excel in the quiz.

Student prices start from 8€/person depending on the number of students and the chosen programme.
