Description

Dovrefjell National Park is the only place in Norway, and one of few places in the world, where you can experience the majestic musk ox. Join us in a safari through the Dovrefjell National Park with guides who know where to find the musk oxen. Experience the musk oxen in its natural habitat, ensured that the guides safeguards both you and the animals. This way you are just about guaranteed to see these magnificent animals, who can weigh up to 400 kilos and make unique pictures and memories to bring back home.
Have you ever seen a big brownish rock move? Probably not, but this is what your first encounter with the musk ox might seem like. This large and calm hoofed animal blends in almost completely with the surroundings and it is not until it starts to move you realize that you are looking at a living thing. Musk oxen are considered to be peaceful animals but you will be adviced to keep a distance.
A musk ox safari gives you a unique opportunity to see musk oxen at close range. There is also a good chance to see reindeer and mountain grouse during the hike. The experienced guides will also give you insight in the areas plant- and animal life.

The safari is an easy hike and does not require anything other than a camera and perhaps a pair of binoculars, as well as clothing and shoes suitable for the season and weather, and bring a packed lunch.
