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.
