$ 3990 USD

Come and join us on a 5 nights, 4 full days unforgettable tour into Dovrefjell National Park. Situated in mid-Norway this is the best location in the world to see and photograph the ancient Musk Ox in stunning scenery.

Magic winter scenery

Winter in Norway and the landscape is coloured in white in the mountains of Norway. In this vast and open landscape we will hike for the Musk Ox and other wildlife for 4 full days.

Weather in the mountains of Norway can be rough, therefore we need a flexible itinerary to be able to change plans according to weather conditions. If we have days with a lot of wind and "whiteout" we may not be able to reach out to musk oxen if they are far away, but we will do our best so you can maximize your opportunities.

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 private bathroom.

Amazing winter scenery

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.

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. The days are getting longer, and we will spend as much time as possible outside in the field. After a day out we will return to the hotel for a warm shower and a dinner at the restaurant.
