Musk Ox Safari in Dovrefjell National Park from Oppdal
From US$56.57
Overview
Follow a guide through Dovrefjell National Park in search of the elusive Norwegian musk ox. Explore the park's alpine scenery and learn about its native flora and fauna through your guide's commentary as you walk. Your guide knows exactly where and how to spot these huge, docile beasts, giving you the best chance of seeing them in their natural habitat.
What to Expect
Meet your guide and group in Oppdal in the morning, then drive independently to the start of the hike at the entrance to Dovrefjell National Park. Be sure to bring extra layers of clothing to accommodate the changing alpine weather, as well as your own packet lunch.

For the next five to seven hours, follow your guide on the park's trails, keeping an eye out for mountain grouse and reindeer. Enjoy the peace and quiet and the spectacular scenery, punctuated by your guide's commentary on the local flora and fauna. You're headed for the best possible spots to see the musk ox, selected in advance by your in-the-know guide. These huge animals may first appear as brown rocks—until they move. Learn about the animals' biology and behavior while getting as close as safety allows for great photos. 

Midday, take a break to enjoy the lunch you've brought with you and coffee provided by your guide.
