As wildlife photographers we are often driven to some of the harshest environments on the planet in pursuit of our next photographic project. A few years back, I was inspired by Vincent Munier's work with the Musk Ox in Dovrefjell during the cold Winter months. So last year I decided I would follow in his footsteps and experience this harsh & unforgiving environment for myself.

I had already led a number of successful tours to Dovrefjell during the Autumn months with good pal and expert Norwegian guide Floris Smeets. I decided to contact him and ask about the possibilities of visiting the park in Winter as he knew the area, the animals better than most and had experience camping in these extreme conditions. Which in all honestly, I had did not. So after a few months of planning the trip was on.
