Find Spectrolite, rockhounding

Bring your group for a treasure hunting tour  to a spectrolite quarry and pick up your own gems, and admire the massive size of one of the largest granite quarries in Finland during the same tour. That is where the famous Ylämaa brown rapakivi granite is quarried. You will feel the calming effect of nature and experience the pure joy of discovery.

Visit also the old Joutsenkoski mill still grinding organic flour. The tour may be supplemented with visits to Salpalinja fortification and/or Pätäri farmhouse museum.
