The two Rivers Suchona and Yug (Jug) join east of the town of Velikiy Ustyug and become Severnaja Dvina (Northern Dwina) which is flowing towards the White Sea. After the town of Kotlas, River Vychegde, being the biggest feeder, flows from the east into River Dvina.
Severnaja Dvina is on its entire length navigable but there are rather few communities along its banks. "Wharfs" can be found near ferries, as for example at Krasnoborsk, Vernajaa Toima, Bereznik and Novodvinsk and at the White Sea harbor town of Archangels / Arkhangel'sk.
But, banks are shallow and sandy most of the time and there are for this reason enough possibilities for a stop.
