Why Travel to Voss

Feel close to mother nature visiting one of the best places in Norway for outdoor activities, Voss. With the perfect location between the Sognefjord and Hardangerfjord fjords and surrounded by forests and gorgeous lakes, Voss offers the biggest variety for sport and adrenalin adventures, valued by many travelers. Make sure to include one of the fjord tours from Voss to come closer to famous heritage sights and to admire their beauty! There are also two incredible alpine resorts where you can train your ski skills: Voss Resort and Myrkdalen Mountain Resort.

If you like hiking, the mountainous area is perfect for your time in Voss as there are many hiking paths to choose from, including those of the Bordalsgjelet Gorge to the ones leading to Bakkanosi. The Bakkanosi is one of the most breathtaking routes that can make your trip unforgettable, offering splendid views from the top of the mountain. While going up, you pass astonishing vistas of the Sognefjord and Naeroyfjord, which is also on the list of UNESCO World Heritage sites.

To continue your nature escape, extend your Norwegian adventure with a bit different perspective by adding to water-related activities, such as kayaking or rafting. For adrenalin lovers, feel free to enjoy paragliding or skydiving and see the beauty of the lakes and landscapes from above!

To spend your leisure time in Voss deliciously, it is possible to learn about and even taste the local cuisine. As such, treat yourself to some smalahove, which is a sheep's head, served on your plate. Of course, there are less extreme options for all foodies, we recommend tasting pinnekjott (cured meat with sour cream porridge) and vossakorv (smoked sausage). And, of course, make sure to have some Voss, the world-famous drinking water, bottled in the area.
