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 6 people. The minimum age for children on this trip is 12.
We had a 60% success rate of seeing beavers on this tour in 2021.
Key species: European beaver, Dipper, Osprey, Sand martin, Heron, Sandpiper & many Pipistrelle bats!
GROUP SIZE: Min 4 people, max 10 people
