Beaver Safari by Canoe – as featured on Countryfile & Great Coastal Railway Journeys.

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.

Key species: European beaver, Dipper, Osprey, Sand martin, Heron, Sandpiper & many Pipistrelle bats!

PRICE: £65pp
GROUP SIZE: Min 4 people, max 10 people
TIME: 2-2.5 hours
AVAILABLE: May – September

The dates are as follows:-

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.

If you have a Gift Up voucher please book by phone (01887  829202) quoting the voucher number when booking. We do also run private trips costing £360 for up to 4 people if none of these dates are suitable – please speak to Beyond Adventure on the above number if this is of interest.

We look forward to seeing you on the water for a fun wildlife experience!
