kaki.1.jpgSilence travel is ideal for small groups organised by small tourism services. It includes individual, personal, friendly service, healthy and tasty local food, sustainable use of the environment, clean and cosy service environments and well-managed, guided outdoor trails. In addition to natural environments, silence travel can take us to special oases of silence in inhabited and urban environments, such as parks, gardens and monasteries.

Ears-first into the Tropics
The Botania botanical garden and butterfly garden form an urban oasis of silence in the vicinity of central Joensuu, far from the roar of the motorways. The shores of Lake Pyhäselkä, the natural landscape around Linnunlahti bay and the arboretum fill the area with the sounds of silence. A guided tour begins in a green outdoor garden and natural soundscape, moving into exquisite indoor soundscapes that stimulate all five senses. In the tropical warmth of the botanical garden, visitors learn about the acoustic phenomena of tropical forests, experiencing them for themselves through a 5 speaker system. There is also time for a tropical butterfly retreat, accompanied by the gentle murmur of a running stream.
Price: EUR 80/group
(maximum group size 10 persons) Price valid starting from 1.4.2015.
Additional services: Inquire about other theme tours at Botania.
