Beaversafari - Beaver & Breakfast

Are you an early bird? Then our “Beaver & Breakfast” is a unique opportunity to experience the beautiful dawn. Just before sunrise we paddle quietly to the beaver’s realm. The night active animals are taking a last meal, wash themselves and prepare for sleep, while the day animals wake up. This moment is one of the most beautiful time of the day! The upcoming golden morning light creates perfect conditions for nature enthusiasts and wildlife photographers.
 A pageant of unique moments within Svartådalens beaver realm. When the sun has risen into the sky we paddle back to the base camp. Here we offer you a delicious breakfast, cooked over an open fire. During breakfast we tell about the beaver's habitat. Beaver is a keystone species and thus vital to our freshwater- and climate system!

Gustav II Adolf was very much in love with Ebba Brahe, but the widowed queen Kristina let Ebba marry Jacob de la Gardie instead. The story goes that Gustav II Adolf was informed of Ebbas and Jacob's wedding. He sped off the war field to prevent the marriage that toke place on the beautiful isle Braheholmen. He let his horse swim 2 km over Lake Fläcksjön instead of riding around the lake, but he arrived too late. The wedding was in full swing when he arrived at Braheholmen. The widowed queen Kristina wrote with a diamond ring on a window to Ebba: 'The one you want the other you will get; it usually goes in such cases'. Ebba then wrote on the window "I bow to your will and find myself in my lot".

Nature & Wildlife sound recording

These trips are particularly appealing to sound recordists but we also welcome anyone with an appreciation of nature. Small group sizes and our knowledge of the area give you the chance to get close to wildlife without disturbing it. April is a magical time in the forests and wetlands as early spring birds display and establish territories, whilst other birds pass through on their way further northwards to their arctic breeding grounds. This is also the best time to experience the spring chorus of frogs and toads in the local rivers and lakes, either from land or by getting out on the water in a canoe. We visit a special local forest lake to place overnight recording gear to capture the beautiful echoing calls of black-throated divers (loons). Another highlight of this trip includes the rare opportunity to experience the strange display of the capercaillie; a turkey-sized forest grouse which visits its traditional display ground in April.

The Black River valley lies in central Sweden about 100km west of the capital Stockholm. The area has been designated as a European Natura 2000 site outstanding for its nature and wildlife and is part ot the UNESCO’s Biosphere Program. The Black River valley is also listed on the International Convention for Wetlands RAMSAR.
