Experienced guides

Another possibility is to do the excursion in Dovrefjell National Park to experience the “prehistoric beast” – the musk ox – in it’s natural environment.You might also be lucky and encounter a fox or a reindeer herd?

If you wish to stay overnight, a night in a tent is recommended – the nature experience is great. If the weather forecast predicts tough weather, cabin accommodation can be arranged. If you are courageous and there is plenty of snow, an overnight stay in a warm snow cave is a number one tip.
