We offer you to choose one of the routes listed in the tables, i.e. the possibility of boating down the rivers of Vidzeme county– Salaca, Jaunupe and Svētupe. By the way, you can use river tubes not only down these rivers but also in the sea.

Salaca – one of the most beautiful rivers of Latvia, located in North par of Vidzeme county. It is 96 km long, starts from the Lake Burtnieks and flows into the Baltic Sea, into the Gulf of Riga. Popular among fishermen and boating enthusiasts, as the outcrops of red sandstone on its shores make the trip really enjoyable.

Svetupe – river is a 58 km long that flows out of lake of Dunezers. A lot of forests and swamps are in the river area. Libiesu upuralas – popular tourism sightseeing object is seen on the bank of the river.

Jaunupe – is not really a river, but an artificially created channel connecting two rivers – Svetupe and Salaca. Water level in Svetupe is higher so the runoff is to Salaca.

It is important to remember that safety is in the first place, so it is essential to use a life vest when boating.
