A walk on old roads and medows along the riverbanks of Ljusnan. Suitable for both children and adults. The walk is about 4 km long. The guide will tell you about the area and how the beaver lives. Chances are that you will spot a beaver or a lodge. We will make several stops during the walk to look for beavers and to have our packed lunch.
The Eurasian Beaver can be up to 75 cm long, tail not included, weigh 20-30 kg and reach an age of 15 years. The fur is brown and very thick. On each cm2 of skin there is around 23 000 hair. The beaver clean and grease its fur with castor which protects it from freezing. The beaver is perfectly adapted for a life under water as it uses its tail as a fen and has got web between the fingers. When they dive they close their nose and mouth and can stay under water for up to 20 minutes. Beavers build dams in springs and streams.
