Pedja (Estonian: Pedja jõgi) is the fourth longest river in Estonia. Its source is near Simuna on the southern slope of Pandivere Upland. The river flows for 122 km through Lääne-Viru, Jõgeva and Tartu counties before joining with Emajõgi northeast of Lake Võrtsjärv. The last 4 km section of the river after confluence with Põltsamaa River is known as Pede River. The largest settlement on the river is Jõgeva.
Pedja River is also the source of the name of Alam-Pedja Nature Reserve, a large protected area on the river's lower reaches.
