This is nice 1-day tour, near the former Vīle narrow gauge railway bridge is convient place to start canoeing trip.

After forest the flow of the Bārta stops to the large island, which has to be bypassed along the right side. Here begins construction and landscape of agricultural character that will continue for the next 7 km up to Nīcabridge. Paddling along the various buildings is quite interesting and views in no way are monotonous. Here the Bārta keeps constant speed of flow what ends only less than a kilometre before Nīcabridge. Here begins dredged section of the Bārta, on the banks are clearly visible dams. It is recommended finnish paddling 300 m behind the Nīcabridge, here is located well-maintained Nīca Region water tourism centre “Upeskrasti” (G).
