Staicele - Salacgrīva

45km. The route is tailored for a leisure 2-day trip by the canoe boats. Enjoy the steep river banks and sand outcrops. Further on the current becomes faster, the rapids begin to appear there. Along the route there is a good standard rest site “MAČKALNI”. After some time the river becomes even faster, there are a lot of small riffles and islands. After the place called Mērnieki you will see a lot of cliffs and riffles again. The most beautiful are the 500 m long Red Cliffs (Sarkanās klintis). There are lamprey fishweirs just after Vecsalaca therefore sailing is a little complicated there.
