Stories have been an inspiration for humans since ancient times. They have been thought generation to generation and the tradition is still alive. Kalevala is collected of thousands of poems by writer Elias Lönnrot in 1835. The epic takes you on a trip where you´ll meet wise magicians, face challenges and overcome them with ”sisu”, the Finnish grit and power. The keys of wellbeing is found within yourself when you have experienced the real Nature. Now we want to reveal the magic of Kalevala also to you.
