Photo safari with guide in winter at Oppdal
Musk ox in winter, a great motif
Seeing the musk ox in the harsh winter climate of Dovrefjell National Park is in itself an experience, and the photo motif can at times be amazing. If it is cloudy or winter stormy, the rugged musk ox is standing still against the winter snowstorm up on the mountain plateau, and posing happily for those who would come by.
Local and experienced guides
The guides offer you the opportunity to join on trips like this by providing local knowledge of the area and approaching the musk ox in a safe environment and experience the outdoors in all weather conditions. The guides have years of experience in organizing musk ox safaris in the national park, and have a burning desire that all our customers will have a great nature experience.
Sleeping in a warm tent in the mountains may be unfamiliar to many, but with high quality equipment, this is a comfortable and enjoyable experience that certainly can be recommended for everyone. As a bonus, you might get lucky to see a reindeer herd or an arctic fox, so just keep your eyes open. Sign up for a wild and eventful Photo Tour!
