The cafe-restaurant Napakymppi serves on the ground floor of the main building. Cafe products (coffee, tea, juices, coffee sandwiches, stuffed breads) can be bought, for example, when picking up tickets for a chilled track. Lunch and other meals for groups can be ordered through our sales service.

Container paths

The stadium is in the middle of the Kontionpolut network, about 50 kilometers of trail running, mountain biking and walking routes. The trail network consists of four interconnecting ring trails and connects to the Kolinpolku hiking trail that goes to Koli and the Jaama Trail ring trail that goes through the center of Joensuu. The route opened in 2017 has clear route markings and signboards.
