The route: The route is about 1,5 kilometers, (45 minutes) from Kattila to Takalan Laavu (Takala Open Shelter with camp fire). We will walk slowly. We will observe Nature. We will cross wet land on wooden trail along the way and walk by a small rapid, if there still is melting waters in the woods. Walk uphill and downhill, over woods, roots and stones. This is a short and a very nice and beautiful walk in the woods. The Route is marked. Don’t bring strollers.

 

At Takala shelter we will make up a fire for ”Black Pot Coffee” and you can warm up your own food/sausages. We will stay at Takala 1-2 hours. (Outdoor dry toilet available, ”puucee”).

 

You will be returning to bus stop and car park following ME, your Guide, or on your own (marked route). Bus from Kattila leaves for Espoon Keskus every half an hour.
