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 an experienced and knowledgeable (native Swedish) beaver guide, 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 few years. The success with spotting beavers has been very good. Nordic Discovery's best safaris delivered ‘beaver contact’ for the whole duration of the paddling trip (3 hours).

The safari is certified Nature's Best's arrangement.

The tour includes: A 5-6-hour guided beaver safari, a three-course dinner, a one-night in a double room, sheets, towels, breakfast with home-made bread and cereal, canoes, paddles, life jackets, water-proof sacks and seat mats.

Number of participants: 2-8 persons.

2020 the safari is arranged on Fridays between the 8th of May and the 25th of September
Parties containing 4 or more participants have the choice to book on other weekdays as well.

The paddling is not physically demanding. We paddle very carefully and with as little noise as possible.

Equipment: Rain gear (in case of rain or as a backup against rain) and warmer clothes to put on after sunset, when the temperature often drops.

Information: At the start, a briefing containing detailed information about the safari and basic paddling instructions are provided.

Safety: The guide is very experienced and is a certified life guard, having passed all of the Swedish Life Guards’ Association’s tests for Life Guard Education. A first aid kit is brought on the tour.

Start and finish time: Depending on the hour of sunset, start and finish times vary throughout the season. We finish in full darkness and start 5 hours earlier.

Start and finish at Kloten's Wilderness Lodge. Comfortable beds, personal touch and wild and exotic animals around the corner.

Nordic Discovery also organizes a variety of other active outdoor experiences in the Nature Reserve Malingsbo-Kloten. Read more on: www.nordicdiscovery.se
