Length of the trip – 25 km.
At the beginning of the river, that is a border crossing of Estonia - Russia – Latvia the river is shallow and fast. The local road bridges follow one after. The river becomes wider but it does not get slower. Behind the Mālupe river the fast flow of the Piededze river calms down and the inclination to the road bridge of Gulbene-Rēzekne is 30 cm per km on average. A beautiful and woody stretch begins 5 km before place called “Jaunannas”. Behind the ‘’Jaunannas’’ the Pededze river is not that snaky and the next part to Litene is the most popular one day paddling route of the Pededze river. The Litene–Gulbene–Rēzekne road is considered one of the most beautiful river stretches in Latvia.
