With 6 photographers only and 2 WildPhoto Norway guides. We will establish a camp as our base up in the mountains where you will stay for 5 nights. This means you will have a lot of time to photograph in the best possible light conditions.

The main focus of this expedition will be the Musk Ox in winter landscape. Expert guides will lead you to the best sites and give you the best possible photo opportunities. Winter up in the Norwegian mountains is a beautiful experience, so be prepared for very good photography opportunities.

From the main road, we will be transported with dog sleds up to our base camp, which will be our home for the coming days. With 6 clients only and 2 guides this expedition will give each photographer the best possible photo opportunities. There are no other people in the area so we will have the wilderness for ourselves. This is a real expedition in winter conditions with temperatures down to -25°C, so experience with winter activities and and camping is strongly recommended.
