The Musk ox is considered to be a peaceful animal, but you will be advised to keep a distance. A musk ox safari gives you a unique opportunity to see the musk ox at close range. There is also a good chance to see reindeer and mountain grouse during the hike. The experienced guides will also give you insight in the area’s plant- and animal life. The safari is a moderate hike and does not require anything other than a camera and perhaps a pair of binoculars, as well as clothing and shoes suitable for the season and weather. Bring a packed lunch and something to drink.
