Teijo National Park Trails

There are about 50 km of marked trails in Teijo National Park. Most of them are 2 - 8 km long, and suitable for day trips, but by combining them it is possible to make a hiking trip that lasts for a weekend. The trails are marked, and there are duckboards going through the damp areas. Along the trails, there are campfire sites, lean-to shelters, and fishing spots.

Check for Warnings

When forest and grass fire warnings (en.ilmatieteenlaitos.fi) are in effect, fire is only allowed at covered campfire sites that have a flue. A fire can be also lit in fireplaces at wilderness and other huts. Always use extreme caution when handling fire. The one who lights a fire is always responsible for its safe use. Please note, that making fire at these campfire sites can be banned locally.
