Campfire sites on Teijo National Park islands

Iso-Holma island, which is located off the Teijo coast on the sea, is a part of Teijo National Park. Two of the 12 campfire sites, the Meriholma Laavu and the Malmvikinlahti campfire site, are located on the island, which is only reachable with private boat transport for the time being.

Thus tenting is also allowed in Teijo National Park – however it is recommended you build your camp adjacent to the official campfire sites. All the campfire sites have an outhouse and a woodshed, and there is usually suitable terrain space for building a tent.
