HIGHWAYSAVO - In English

HighwaySavo is a joint communications project of Local Action Groups and ELY Centre in Northern Savo. The aim of the project is to promote regionally and locally European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development.

 

People of Savo have discovered an innovative way to move during winter: snow rowing. It’s is a mixture of fun, play and exercise. Snow rowing is based a new regional invention. The machine is a combination of traditional rowing boat oars and skis mounted on a device on which you can sit and row on snow or on ice. The machine is being further developed with the aid of the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development.

 

In the video Jussi Vatanen, one of the most well-known actors in Finland, shows how to row a snowy field in Savo. The world’s first snow rowing competition will be held on 18th February 2018 in Vieremä.
