The flow of the river Rūja is unhurried, however, the river can come as a surprise from time to time. On the route from Naukšēni to Lake Burtnieks, you can enjoy a smooth ride, listening to the sounds of nature and watching the countryside and the landscapes of the town of Rūjiena, which opens from the shallow banks of the river. During the floods and prolonged rains, the river has a high water level, which allows boating along its entire length, even during the summer.
