River Beaver safari

Paddle the land of the river beavers

In the bright evening, we enter our canoes and slowly drift with the current of the Piteå River, looking for the shy beavers along the riverbanks. This second-largest rodent in the world, live in small family groups in their “lodge” homes with underwater entrances along the riverbank.
Between the steep riverbanks, where bank-swallows nest, we can see beaver canals where they transport the harvested branches from their cut trees. As the evening gets darker, we may encounter beaver felling a tree or if we get to close to a swimming beaver, we may hear them slapping the water with their broad tail as an alarm call to the other beavers.
Before it gets dark, we land on a small river island to rest, take some “river snacks” and listen to the evening sounds of the river and the surrounding forest.
