One of the classic paddling routes along the Gauja River. Behind the railway bridge begins exciting river section - Strenči rapids, which continues until Krāčupe estuary. Further the river banks become higher and more picturesque. Behind the Mellupe estuary on the right bank is Sīmanēni Holy Oak, where it is possible to get the strength for further paddling. Closer to Valmiera the river has more sandbanks. The end of the route the in Daliņi is recommended for paddlers who are afraid to go through Kazu rapids in Valmiera, but if you have the skills for getting through rapids and you want to enjoy sharper feelings – surely go futher up to the boat station in Valmiera.
