Building an expanded dugout boat at Saarisoo Farm

The expanded dugout boat has been an irreplaceable means of transport for locals who would not have been able to move otherwise during the floods that happen in the Soomaa area during the fifth season. Today, the historical boat has largely been replaced by cheaper canoes and boats, but some masters still teach the art of building them in the old style.Building an expanded dugout boat is brought to life at Saarisoo Farm in Soomaa. The 2–3-hour programme under the guidance of Aivar Ruukel includes an introduction to theoretical and practical elements of constructing such a boat. We will also go on a ride on the Navesti River.
