Teijo National Park is located in the municipality of Perniö, about 20 km from the town of Salo, 70 km from Turku, 140 km from Helsinki and 200 km from Tampere, in Southwest Finland region.
The park was established on January 1 2015 and covers an area of 34 square kilometers.
In the National Park, there is one eutrophic fen, which is a type of mire that has almost disappeared in southern Finland. The forests are mainly young managed pine forests.
The park is also home for several species of freshwater fish, nesting birds including goose, cranes, sandpipers and grouse; and mammals such as moose and deer.
There are approximately 50 kilometers of marked trails in the park, including 3 kilometers of trails for physically disabled persons.
There are historical industrial areas, including a former iron works area in Kirjakkala. The iron works contain many log houses from the 1800s which have been renovated to their original state.
Teijo is a family destination with something to offer for everyone.
