Wild reindeer hunting break in Norway

Wild reindeer

Reindeer play a fundamental role in the Sami culture and way of life. They provide essential resources, from food to materials for clothing. The Sami move their reindeer herds with the seasons, taking them across vast expanses of land over long distances.

season

For those who love hunting in the wild and spending nights in bivouacs amid magnificent tundra landscapes, this experience is a real adventure. The European reindeer is the largest trophy relative to its body size. It lives in the tundra regions of northern Europe, with one of the largest populations in Norway. Around a thousand reindeer live in this area, including around 170 adult males considered to be trophies. Like its cousin, the Canadian caribou, the reindeer is a migratory animal. Their movements depend on various factors such as climate, insects and food. If the migration follows its normal course, the hunt is generally completed in 2 to 3 days. However, it is advisable to allow at least five days for the hunt, as the climate in northern regions can sometimes be unpredictable.

Philosophy & ethics

By taking part in this activity, man establishes a communion with the animal, perceived as a predator. More precisely, they identify with it, rediscovering the true link with their origins.

Nevertheless, it is essential to note that man cannot simply imitate animal behaviour when he holds a gun in his hands. Although their instincts that stimulate their senses and their intelligence are similar, it is obvious that their respective destructive capacities cannot be compared. Consequently, while the animal is forced to follow its instinct strictly, man, without suppressing it completely, must be able to channel its excesses in order to transcend its expression. This is where ethics come into play, as an essential condition for authentic and truly humane hunting.

Over the millennia, humans and dogs have forged a close bond. Whether as guardians, sheepdogs, rescue dogs, assistance dogs, detection dogs, trackers, guide dogs for the blind or hunting companions, dogs are present alongside humans in a multitude of activities. Hunting, which has been practised for a long time, is one of the areas where dogs have always played an important role, both in the past and in today’s society.

The dog’s role is to detect game, then stop near it so as to immobilise it, while indicating its location to the hunter.

Escapade Norvégienne is the peace and serenity you need without even knowing it. It’s a quaint and charming place in an otherwise very unpopulated area and it gives you toasty warm cabin vibes as soon as you arrive. Make sure to take a trip down to the lake and borrow a canoe to go visit the mossy island in the middle. You’ll find the epicenter of peace and serenity on the quiet shores of this little island. The gastronomical highlight of the stay was the breakfast the next morning! Homemade croissants, curtesy of our French hostess, garden picked strawberries, freshly baked bread and a selection of meats and cheeses. The coffee was delicious too - but almost not needed after the amazing night of sleep and the soul-recharge this place gives.

Wonderful hosts, beautiful location with unique Norwegian scenery. It's like taking a trip back in time, to a simple and beautiful life. They have their own hens( means fresh and amazing eggs for breakfast) and their own dogsled dogs available for trips. If you want to Explore the beautiful nature in Norway, with perfect guides this is the place. You can even get a own guide for a custom made fishing trip. The french cuisine from the lovely hostess is AMAZING, a must try! Great value for money. Best place to stay in Tolga.

The perfect hideaway, in serene beautiful nature with a homemade breakfast to die for ☺I had been on a long roadtrip already, including several workshops (I am a photographer), and was just dog tired and wanted to rest for one night, and then driving from Røros I found this place close to the border, less than one hour away. It is beautifully situated, in serene nature, and although close to Røros, it is the perfect hideaway. Run by a French couple that have found their piece of paradise, running a husky farm among other things. It is an old farm, with hundreds of years of history in its walls, and huge comfortable beds, tough to wake up from. I am not a breakfast person, but Stephanié made the best brunch I have had in a very long time, with fresh home made sourdough bread, wonderful French omelette, cheese, cured meats, lingonberries +++, and all just for me! That meal alone was worth it, so my only complaint is that I couldn't stay longer.

Fairytale ☺Fantastic location, amazing fairytale howling sounds from the sledge dogs. The host was helpful to find us another location on our way back, since theirs was full booked, but we unfortunately could not answer due to the lack of reception in the woods. Sorry for that and we are grateful for your help! ☹Everything was perfect.
