You would enter the park through Jeska, which is a little town that has quite an attractive appeal to it. This is the very first of the parks that were opened in the country, with opening date being in 1962. There are some rivers and lakes available but the park is really well-known by the fact that it is inhabited by over 24 species, including the beautiful reindeer. To make matters even more interesting, wildlife watchers are going to love the 125 bird species present in Rondane Nasjonalpark.

Dovrefjell National Park

The park is located in the middle of Norway. It is definitely one of the best national parks that you can visit. Any visit allows you to see a multitude of reindeer but the park is also a great location for those looking for the arctic fox and the wolverine. However, the creatures are elusive and it is rare to get the opportunity to see them. Visitors usually come to the Dovrefjell National Park in order to see beautiful musk ox. It is a species that almost ended up extinct during the second World War but through careful breeding the animal is now present in a limited herd environment. It is not known whether or not the animal will still be around the next century but if you are a part of a park safari, there is a pretty good possibility you will see it.
