“If you take a walk or look out over the lake at dusk, you might just be lucky enough to see a beaver in its natural habitat. They can be easily spotted along Åmli`s many waterways. If you don´t want to wait until evening, you can visit Elvarheim museum in Åmli, where you can see an exhibition about beavers and their natural habitats. The museum also has a display of Norwegian animals including a brown bear and a number of exhibits from the bear hunter, Olav Tverrstøyl – including rifles, fishing equipment, clothes and skis.”
