We have teamed up with local canoeing experts with 30 years of experience to deliver this tour, which takes place on a beautiful section of the River Tay near Aberfeldy. This is an ideal way to get close to wildlife with minimal disturbance and we usually see a variety of bird life as well as the local beaver lodge, beaver trails, evidence of feeding and hopefully the beavers themselves. Meeting in Aberfeldy at 6.30pm, the Beaver Safari by Canoe includes canoeing instruction, your canoe, buoyancy aid, guiding by your wildlife guide and a wee beaver memento!
Private trips can also be arranged, costing £360 for up to 4 people. The minimum age for children on this trip is 12.

We have continued to get 5 star reviews for this tour and it has been described as ‘Best Christmas present ever’ and ‘One of the best wildlife experiences in Scotland’ so we are confident you will have a great time. We saw beavers on all except one of our Beaver Canoe Safaris in 2022, as well as regular Kingfishers, Goosanders, Dippers, Shelduck, Sand Martins, MANY bats, the occasional Osprey and heaps of Mallard duckling fluffles.
