Here is an Aspen tree that we cut today for a boat building. Dugout canoes made of bi9g aspen logs are tradional boats for villages of Soomaa.
We are going to build on this summer in Karuskose.
Latvian journalist visited Soomaa. See pictures from dugout canoe trip.
Traditional dugout canoes of Soomaa (called “haabjas” in estonian) are attending couple of maritime festivals in July. On the second weekend “Sea Fest” will take place on Kihnu island. Week later Tallinna Maritime Days are celebrated in the Capital of Estonia. Come and meet us, and try how it is to paddle a dugout canoe!
