Primeval valley of the River Brasla
Primeval valley of the River Brasla

Primeval Valley of River Brasla 

 

Although the river is classified as “small”, this section of the river does not have the typical obstacles the small rivers have — trees fallen over the river, stacks of trees and branches in the river, and traces of beavers.

The largest obstacle is the dam of Brasla water reservoir. Take your canoes around it on the right riverside. Respect the informative signs installed in the vicinity of fish breeding farm, which is a private property; however, one shall be aware of the rights to unlimited access to the protection zone of a river. Faster rapids are experienced in the section downstream of the water power plant till its mouth with the River Gauja. When the water level is higher, the shallow places, stones, and islets are below the water; however, in case of lower water level at some places these may hinder the paddlers and one shall be ready to step out and push the canoe. The trip on Brasla is enriched with the many sandstone outcrops. The route runs through Gauja National Park.

 

Distance

~25 km (Brasla) + 15 km (Gauja).
