We will make an overnight trip to Paimio on the Preitilä trail on 21.10.-22.10. During the trip we will walk 11 km and sleep in tents for the night. The night can be very cold, so all participants should bring warm enough and weatherproof clothes and equipment and a warm sleeping bag. The APK has some camping equipment available for loan for the trip. Please note that if you need to borrow a tent, there will probably not be enough for everyone to borrow their own tent. There are also no water points along the trek route, so we will carry drinking and cooking water with you.
Departure for the hike will be from Puutori (PT5) on Saturday 21st October at 10.55 with bus number 705. Please arrive on time at the departure point. If you arrive by car, we will meet at the parking lot of Paimion parantola (Alvar Aallontie 275) at 12.00. We will arrive at Paimio Sanatorium at 11.55. The return to Turku will be on Sunday at 16.30.
Participation costs 15 € for APK members, for others 20 €. You can also become a member when registering or on the spot. Please note that the bus fare to and from Paimio costs about €10-12 in total. The participation fee for the excursion includes warm meals and breakfast.
