Overview

Dovrefjell National Park is the only place in Norway, and one of few places in the world, where you can experience the majestic muskox.

Join us in a safari through the Dovrefjell National Park with guides who know where to find the muskox. Experience the muskox in it's natural habitat, ensured that the guides safeguard both you and the animals. This way you are just about guaranteed to see these magnificent animals, which 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 muskox 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. The Muskox is considered to be a peaceful animal, but you will be advised to keep a distance. A muskox safari gives you a unique opportunity to see the muskox 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 area's plant- and animal life. The safari is an moderate 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. Bring a packed lunch and something to drink.
