Central Sweden peculiar Jämtland is considered one of the best areas to see Beavers in the wild. Central Sweden is an area with lots of lakes, rivers and forests. The most important thing is of course the Birch. This type of tree is the food source of the beaver and is located at many lakes along the waterfront. Here the Beavers are only too happy to gnaw. The beavers also make castles and dams that can be very recognizable.

You go 3 to 4  hours in a canoe under the guidance of an experienced guide. The goal is to spot the beaver who builds on his castle. Here on the river construction work is in progress, the beaver is not building it is collecting food. It is a busy owner and it is almost certain that you see a beaver at work. You also have a chance that you see the king of the forest the Elk and if you are very quiet the bear can also be spotted but that is really lucky.
