The Lampivaara Café has been built from solid woods and is one of the first buildings to be erected in the Luosto area. Over the years it has become known to many wanderers and skiers as an energising resting place where the friendly staff, delicious doughnuts and newly-baked buns and fresh coffee serve to make your break as enjoyable as possible.
There is 5 km of lit track leading from Luosto to the café. In the café yard area, there is a sheltered fireplace where the visitor can freely light him/herself a fire. The café functions as a base station for the Amethyst Mine, and sells tickets to the mine.
During the summer season (June – October) Lampivaara Café is daily open from 10:30 am until the last tour of the Amethyst Mine (16:00 or 17:00).
In May Café is closed.
During skiing season (December – April) Lampivaara Café is daily open from 10:30 am (excl. 24.-25.12.2013)
In wintertime it is possible to travel to Lampivaara with special Amethyst Pendolino that takes visitors to Amethyst Mine.
