The APK October trip will take place on 15th-16th October, so it will be an overnight trip! The route runs from Silvola in Rusko to Humikkala in Masku and is part of the Kuhankuono hiking trails. On Saturday 15.10. at 10:39am we will take the Föli bus (line 303) from Puutori, arriving in Silvola at about 11:30am. We will return to Turku from Masku by bus on Sunday at about 5pm. You can also join the trip on Saturday only and take a bus back to Turku on Saturday evening or Sunday morning.
The hike is about 18 kilometres, and we will spend the night near the Kerva lean-to, which is located about halfway along the trail. In addition to walking and sleeping outside, we will make food together and enjoy the autumnal nature. If you wish, you can find out more about the Kuhankuono hiking trails at https://kuhankuono.fi/en; the trail that we will be hiking on Saturday is called the Rehtsuo route.
The price is 5 euros for APK members and 10 euros for non-members. We will provide meals for the participants during the trip, which we will prepare together. Please bring your own water bottle, cutlery and a necessary amount of snacks for yourself.
APK has a few sleeping bags, sleeping pads and tents available to borrow, so it’s okay if you don’t own all the equipment yourself. However, it is important to bring warm, weatherproof clothing and shoes, as well as a spacious rucksack to be able to carry the necessary equipment. Now that the nights are already getting colder, it’s important to bring enough clothes – too much rather than too little. Layered clothing is a good option. An email will be sent to those who have signed up for the trip during the week of the trip with more practical information.
