Dovrefjell National Park is situated at approx 1000 meters above sea level, we choose our dates when the autumn meets the winter, and this is the time when the first snow starts falling. Its the time of the year when you can expect everything from sunny wild autumn days, to windy days with snow and white out conditions.

Our accommodation site during the tour will be at Oppdal, a 20-30 minute drive to the national park. Here we will stay at the Skifer Hotel. The hotel has high standard and all rooms are single rooms with bath.

The mountains of Dovrefjell gives us amazing scenery. During these days in the Mountains you must expect long days out in the field and many kilometres of walking. We strongly recommend you to be in good shape before signing up for this tour. We assure you though, if you come and join us we will take you to the best spots and this gives you amazing photo opportunites as well as a beautiful area to hike in.

Our days will start with a fantastic breakfast buffet at our hotel where we also will make our packed lunch and some hot drinks before we go out in the field. We have almost 12 hours of sunlight so we will do our best to take advantage of the good light morning and evenings. After a day out we will return to the hotel for a warm shower and a dinner at the restaurant.

Dovrefjell in autumn is moody. Expect everything from + 15 degrees celsius to - 10 C and storm. We therefore strongly recommend you to dress in layers, use good clothes, and especially good footwear. If you have any questions or want our tip about what to wear, do not hesitate to contact us. We can also help you provide most of the clothing so you can pick it up at arrival the first evening
