Route description

Põltsamaa River is third in length amongst Estonian rivers and also the only one that passes through four counties. It is 135 km long, ~115 km of its length is suitable for water tourism throughout the year, unless there is ice. With River Pede, Pedja and Emajõgi up to Võrtsjärve Visiting Centre, the length of the route comes up to 135 km. The river is fed by groundwater, making it passable even on dry periods. Suitable for boat, canoe and other vehicles from Ao impounded lake.
Canoe trips on River Põltsamaa take travelers through protected bog areas where the river meanders lazily and creates multiple old rivers; and the scenic downtown area of Põltsamaa where it rushes over rapids. There are karstic features in the area, lots of fossil-rich limestone deposits.
Be careful about the trees that might have been fallen into the water!
