Muskox winter photo expedition

This tour is carefully selected for photographers who want to experience these amazing animals in their right element, winter & snow. We like to call it a photo expedition as we carefully enter their territory “expedition style” with back country skis, pulkas and the the same equipment that we use on the north- or south pole expeditions. You never know what weather to expect in these areas so before we go out and, you will be trained and prepared by the polar guides of Arctic Training & Expeditions.

If you are medium fit, and motivated to spend two nights in expedition tents and long days outdoors you will have a lifetime experience + lots of good photo opportunities. Welcome to the amazing scenery of Norway`s national mountain, Dovrefjell.

At Dovrefjell (Dovre mountain) you find the only wild herd of Muskox in Norway. Currently it is estimated to be more than 200 animals in the area. When venturing into the area (on skis) we proceed with great care and respect for the natural habitat for wildlife. In this way we will go as close as we can without disturbing these amazing animals. This tour is aimed for keen wildlife photographers who want to capture cool winter photos of Muskox, other wildlife and the stunning landscapes of Dovrefjell.  We will establish an expedition-style basecamp in Muskox land and spend two nights and three days in their territory. For sporty photographers this is an unforgettable tour with great photo opportunities in the beautiful mountain range of Mid-Norway.
