Dovrefjell National park is known to be the home to elusive musk oxen. These animals are contemporaries of mammoths and wooly rhinos - the survivors of great Pleistocene extinction. They are evolutionary designed to survive the harshest conditions in the world.
Dovrefjell mountains is now the home to over 250 musk oxen, which were reintroduced here in the middle of XX century. And, more important, it's the most accessible place in the world where you can see musk oxen!
If you're animal photographer or wildlife lover, you are welcome to join our special trip to Norway! The beginning of November is a great time for photography - the mountains are already covered with snow, the daylight is still long, and the sun is low - perfect conditions to make great shots.
