Haveri Gold Mine Area
The area of the former Haveri Gold Mine offers many activities and sights for you to enjoy. The mine was opened in the 18th century, and a mine tower and large, rocky open pit can still be seen in the area. Closed in the 1960s, the mine has since filled with water. The Haveri Gold Mine is also a great diving destination. During the summer there are guided tours to the closed mining area.
There are restaurants in the area as well as companies providing accommodation services. There is also a beach. The water-filled open pit is a major Finnish diving destination. The depth at the bottom is nearly 70 metres. Winter diving is also possible. Diving in the mine is highly demanding, and accidents have also taken place there over the years. This is one reason why the area is completely fenced, and access is only granted to diving associations.
