Tuonela is the Underworld, The Realm of The Dead, in Finnish mythology. Like other Underworlds from mythology, it sits on an island and is reached by crossing a river. It is ruled over by the God Tuoni, and His Wife, Tuonetar, who serves as Ferrywoman and Hostess. This realm appears in the Kalevala when Väinämöinen travels there seeking knowledge.
