Silence with Kantele, Finnish nationalinstrument, kalevala

Discover the Finnish soulscape by crafting a kantele like Väinämöinen in the Finnish epic The Kalevala, and fall in love with this fascinating instrument in the peaceful milieu of a Karelian guesthouse. Then spend a day amidst the epic scenery of Karelia tuning your own kantele and learning from an expert the secrets of your five-stringed instrument. Learn to conjure up songs that will carry you away from your everyday life. The meditative power of the kantele is irresistible, and even a bigger can make beautiful sounds with it. Choose from one of five different guesthouses, each of which offers its own speciality and all of which serve delicious food!
