Join us on a spring trip to the realm of beavers, surrounded by sunset lights. On our wildlife boat trip, we will explore the rich fauna of the Hortobágy River and meet Eurasia’s largest rodents, beavers weighing up to 20-30 kg and reaching up to 1 metre in length, and their spectacular constructions. During the more than two-hour water safari, you’ll have an unforgettable experience while becoming one with the unspoilt natural environment.

Before our hike we will have a late lunch/early dinner together. During this time we will meet our guide, a nature guard and a renowned conservationist, an experienced tour guide and expert on Lake Tisza and the Hortobágy, formerly a staff member of the Hortobágy Bird Hospital, who works with heart and soul to promote and protect our natural treasures. He will tell us about the wildlife of the Hortobágy River and the region, as well as the interesting history and ecological importance of beavers in Hungary.

After dinner we hop in a boat and set off up the Hortobágy River from the Nine-arched Bridge, a World Heritage Site and one of the most famous sights in the region. Far from traffic and settlements, this stretch of the river is an ideal home for beavers. Here, the canopy of the floodplain forest almost closes over the water, and the rodents, which can grow up to 20 kilos, find plenty of materials to exercise their “environmental engineering creativity”: they can build huge beaver castles from branches and logs. 

Few people may know, but the native Eurasian beaver once disappeared from Hungary. The last specimens were recorded in the mid-19th century, but after that they were absent from our waters for a long, long time. Fortunately, the reintroduction projects that started in the 1990s have been successful, and since then the presence of beavers has been instrumental in maintaining the floodplain ecosystem and contributing to the conservation of the unique character of the landscape. 

During our tour we will get to admire their creations – beaver castles and dams up to 2 metres high – but it is almost guaranteed that as dusk approaches we will also meet some of the industrious rodents, who are more active at night.
