Safari reviews:

“On the moose safari we were hiking in the deep forest, when suddenly a  big moose was rising up from his rest right in front of us. The moment was both a little bit scary and very exciting.“

Jovanna Richez

Beaver safari in Sweden - A real nature experience

Beaver safari - A spectacular show. A large splash breaks the silence and water rises spectacular towards the sky. A few seconds later, the water droplets descend back and melt into the surface of the lake once again. A beaver dove- flicking the water up with his long, flat tail

Join Sweden's most popular beaver safari

Canoe paddling through a beaver-rich wilderness area in Sweden

At sunset, while the sun goes down behind undulating forests, we paddle out on a beaver safari. Through the beaver-rich wilderness area, we move as silently as possible in Canadian canoes (the Native Americans’ traditional canoe with space for two adults- which, in common language, is simply called, ‘canoe’). It is in the evening, under the shelter of the trees’ long shadows that the beaver is very active. With care, we glide in silence towards the beaver huts. Slowly, slowly, in order to get as close as possible without harming the beavers

The adventure starts with a three-course dinner with many ingredients from the forest. Over dinner we listen to the experienced and knowledgeable (native Swedish) beaver guide Mikael Nilsson, who informs us about the beaver and many other wild animals in the forest. When the paddling starts, everyone has to be absolutely silent. Then we only communicate with sign language (a necessary condition if we are to see the shy and hard-working nibblers)

The chances of seeing beavers are very high. Many beavers were spotted on all beaver safaris during the last five years. The success with spotting beavers has been very good. Nordic Discovery's best safaris delivers ‘beaver contact’ for the whole duration of the paddling trip (3 hours)

    • The beaver photos have been taken by pro wildlife photographer, Peter Cairns, on Nordic Discovery's beaver safaris in May 2009. The pictures were taken during the creation stage of the book, Wild Wonders Of Europe
