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 river banks.
This second-largest rodent in the world, live 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 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.
