TWO FULL DAYS PRIVATE MUSKOX SAFARI
Dovrefjell National Park is the only place in Norway, and one of few places in the world, where you can encounter and photograph the majestic muskox on foot. After breakfast you will be driven to the nearest trailhead and then we will hike using snowshoes to the Muskox herd. With our experienced private guide we will approach them with respect and caution and ensure that everyone in the group has the chance to enjoy an experience of a lifetime. Packed lunch included. Overnight at the same lodge.
CAMPING WITH THE MUSKOX OR YOUR CHOICE
For those with an adventurous spirit and a good level of fitness we have added in an ‘optional’ winter camping trip right in the heart of the Muskox territory. Not only does this provide an active and fun snow shoeing or cross country skiing day for those who would like to try, it also provides more overall photography time with the Muskox. Clients who would prefer to stay in the lodge, will enjoy another day with the Muskox as per Days 3&4. Overnight camping or back at the lodge depending on your choice.
FINAL MORNING WITH MUSKOX
For our camping clients they will have an additional morning with the Muskox before helping to pack up camp and then snow shoe or ski back to the vehicle pick up point where we will drive back to our hotel for our final night.
MORNING FREE THEN TRAIN BACK TO OSLO
A relaxed day for those who did not sleep so well camping in the snow and a chance to get all our gear together in time for the transfer to Oppdal station to connect with the train back to Oslo. On arrival we will overnight at a mid-range hotel in the centre of the city.
FLIGHT HOME FROM OSLO
Our group will organise their own taxis or shuttle buses to the airport to connect with their onward international flights (cost not included).
