River is comparatively large and routes can be started quite upstream (~ 20 km from outfall), but usually paddlers start near Puces or even downstream. Wight of the river – 5-15 m, slope in riverhead 2-3 m/km, not far from river Abava approx. 4-5 m/km. Main obstacles – jams to wind fallen trees and banks, however there are almost no insuperable jams. Occasionally there clears nice riverside scenery. If water is high enough, it's worth to go in spring to get most of the nature blossom. On riverside there are few dolomite, loam and sandstone outcrops.
Approximately 1 km above lower bridge is located Kalniņmuiža mill dam. It's about 1,5 m high, it's bottom is vertical. Rodeo drive here is rather poor, but it's good for jumps, however in low and middle high water boat damage is possible (especially left flow's bottom is a mess).
Overall duration of route depends on water level. Starting from Pūces to lower bridge it takes approx. 2,5h.
