Musk Ox & Winter Wildlife Tour
(please wait for images to load then click to expand)
Dovrefjell, Norway, over 2000 metres above sea level, is home to Europe’s only wild Musk Ox population. Weighing in at nearly half a ton, these formidable bovine possess the strengh and stamina needed to survive this savage Nordic terrain.
Their long unruly hair resembles a woolly mammoth, giving an indication of their ancient lineage from a time where snow and ice dominated the landscape. And it is in this beautiful and sometimes unforgiving environment that we will be photographing these majestic animals.
Although our target species is the mighty Musk Oxen, we will be spending a day trying to photograph other winter wildlife such as European Moose and other woodland deer that can be found in the surrounding area. We will also be using a hide for this purpose.
This very unique winter tour has been carefully planned to enable you to enjoy the stunning landscape and work with these wild subjects like no other conventional photographic tour.
The journey begins with an exhilarating dogsled ride to get us and our equipments to the top. We will then be trekking in snow using snowshoes thus requiring a good level of physical fitness.
If the weather and conditions are safe to do so, we will be camping one night under the stars, atop the snow-capped mountain. You may catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights a.k.a. Aurora Borealis.
I will be on hand to provide photographic guidance while our specialist guide/s with years of experience will help us track down these magnificent animals.
Due to the wintry conditions and the way that we will be working, we can only take 3 lucky people on this tour.
So if you’re ready for a ‘real’ wildlife photography adventure, then come join us for an unforgettable trip in February.
