Drift down the Piteå River on this kayak safari tour to observe beavers in their natural habitat. You can see the homes they build, their canals along the riverbanks, how they fell trees, and how they swim.

What to expect?

In the bright evening, we board our kayaks, and slowly drift with the current of the Piteå River, looking for the shy beavers along the river banks. This second-largest rodent in the world lives in small family groups in their lodge homes with underwater entrances along the river bank.

Between the steep riverbanks, where bank-swallows nest, we can see beaver canals, where they transport the harvested branches from the cut trees. As the evening gets darker, we may encounter beavers felling a tree, or if we get close to a swimming beaver, we may hear them slapping the water with their broad tails 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.
