On the last weekend of May, APK goes hiking in Teijo National Park! It will be a relaxed hike, during which we will get to enjoy diverse forest and lake landscapes, cook together, swim in Matildanjärvi and go to a sauna.
This hike is great for both beginners and more experienced hikers who want to spend a fun and relaxing weekend in the woods. However, it is important to have suitable clothes and equipment for the trip. So you need to bring at least water-resistant outdoor clothes and hiking shoes, as well as a rucksack where you can carry all the necessary equipment. APK has a couple of sleeping bags and sleeping pads as well as tents to borrow, so you don’t have to own all the equipment yourself. The organizers of the hike also will take care of the camping stoves. An e-mail will be sent to those who have signed up for the trip during the trip week, where they will be told more about practical matters.
The departure for the hike is on Friday 26th May around 4:30 p.m., and on Sunday we will be back in Turku in the early evening. We’ll try to travel to Teijo by carpooling, if enough participants have a car. If this is not possible, we will travel there by public transport. The departure would then be on Friday from Kupittaa at 4:30 p.m., from where we would first travel by train to Salo and from there jump on the bus leaving at 5:10 p.m. towards Teijo. The return would be on Sunday by bus from Ylönkylä at 16:10 to Salo, from where we would return to Turku by train.
The price of the hike is 15 euros for APK members and 20 euros for non-members. We offer the participants meals which we prepare together during the hike. You should take your own snacks with you on the trip. The transportation costs are at own expense; if we travel with carpools, the sharing of fuel costs is agreed by car group, and if traveling by public transport, the price of the bus and train tickets are around 18 € in total.
