Trip to Dovrefjell
We choose this area to ski, but also because of some particularities... Dovrefjell is the only place in Europe where you can see the last genetically pure wild reindeer population. In 2003 There where about 1800 reindeer in this area, so we have some chance to see some ! The other reason which was the main reason was because you can also find in this area Musk Oxen which have been reintroduced some 50 years ago, now there are about 135 Musk Oxen. We where really looking forward to see some.
We took the train from Notodden to Kongsvoll.
They say that they can be aggressive, and unpredictable, that's why you need to keep a distance of about 200m...
Of course we didn't that's the range for those who have a very good camera. We came closer...to 100m , 90m...hum some few more ?... we stoped at around 60m from them to take this nice pictures for you !
no not this time, it's Reinheim cabin.
....To be continued.....
