The river is very beautiful in the evening! Our guide was friendly and told us some things about the beavers in the area. When passing through the forest we (of course) were silent. It was exiting looking for traces of beavers..... we saw one eventually (from a distance). The whole trip lasted about three hours. We hoped to see more beavers (and maybe more up close) but understand that wild animals can be elusive....which is also the charm. The price is a little high, but we are glad we made the trip!
