Guided summer walking safaris are organised from June to September to see these unkempt, half-ton beasts. The safaris last approximately six hours.
Guests are virtually guaranteed an encounter with the shaggy arctic creatures. It is also a fair chance that you will see reindeer and grouse. The experienced guides will also tell you about the plants and wildlife in the Dovrefjell National Park.
The musk oxen, who are survivors from the last glacier epoch, are not aggressive, as long as you do not get too close.
Out of consideration for your personal safety and the well-being of the animals, you should maintain a distance of at least 200 metres. The musk ox may seem big and clumsy, weighing between 225 and 400 kilos, but they move fast with a top speed of 60 kilometres per hour.
