We hiked up to the cafe, it's an easy walk, got our tickets and waited for the gates to be opened. The experience is a talk in a hut with berry juice, and digging up your own amethyst. We weren't expecting much from the amethyst...More

Bumpy ride with great views at the top. Nice little talk with warm juice. The digging is at the bottom of steep stairs and was quite fun.

We took the snow transport from Luosto centre, it takes about one hour to climb through heavily snowed forests to the top of the fell. It’s a unique way to travel, quite a bumpy ride and it was very full on New Years Day so...More
