It is possible to participate in a guided mine visit all year round, with the exception of a few weeks in May and November, when it is not safe to travel to the mine due to weather conditions.

Inside the Pyhä-Luosto National Park, there is also the Ukko-Luosto scenery hut. A scenery hut is a wilderness hut whose permanent exhibition "Fell light scenery" introduces its viewers to the secrets of northern natural light phenomena. The 4 km long route to the summit of Ukko-Luosto fell is worth climbing. 575 steps lead the hiker to the look out point on the top of Ukko-Luosto, which offers a memorable view towards Siurunaapa.
