Many guests come to us because they would like to see some Beavers when they visit Sweden. Beavers are fascinating creatures. Did you know that its nest can be as tall as a human and that it can cut a big tree with it’s bare teeth? Join our guides for an evening boat tour on the lake and meet this fascinating Engineer of the forest. As the day comes to an end and dusk falls we enter our boat and travel silently not to disturb the wildlife. Our sharpened senses and intense search for any trace of Beaver eventually takes us to one of its well camouflaged lodges. The scenery is idyllic with lush trees and a black water mirror. Suddenly ripples break the flat surface. The next moment a wet little creature appears by the shore right in front of you, the Beaver has arrived for its evening feeding!
We travel together in a small rubber boat with electric engine accompanied by a skilled guide. During the tour we eat an evening meal together on the shore of a beautiful forest lake. The long sun hours of the light Nordic Summer will enable us to enjoy every moment of this eventful journey.
