Very nice drive up to the mining experience. Even better once we went underground. Our guide Gerry was very informative and entertaining. Definitely a must visit if you are in the area. Great history both recent and older.

Really rate this, you get to meet people who have worked in the mine. Get to see close up and pretty raw how the mine was worked. Would definitely go back again.

We had a very enjoyable and informative visit to Arigna. Our guide Gerry was excellent and very knowledgeable as an ex-miner. I would recommend it as a great day out for families of all ages.

A definite must!!!! We stayed at with family in Ariana so we're near to the mine. It is only small so not overpowering. Very well signposted from all around the area and you may think you have taken a wrong turn but trust the signposts!...More
