West Greenland Musk Ox Safari

The musk oxen are large animals with long fun coats and thick widespread horns. The thick overcoats of these animals are long straight hair that hang down to the ground and protect them from the chilling cold and bad weather conditions. These mighty animals originate from North-East Greenland and were moved to South Greenland during the eighties. The area of South Greenland has actually prospered them as there are very good environmental conditions which are just suitable to the musk ox.

West Greenland provides the best opportunities for tourists to get a close view at these impressive animals in their natural surroundings. This amazing musk ox lives in the area around Kangerlussuaq and can move around freely anywhere. There are many guided tours which take guests close enough to these musk ox. These can be seen in groups of 10 to 20, hence are easy to trace in the wild.

These animals are used to humans, but are also unpredictable so it is advisable to maintain a distance while you are on musk ox safari. Always listen to the instructions of the guide as it will be beneficial in terms of better viewing. The musk ox safari will not require more than a camera and a pair of binoculars.
