Description

There is a marked trail leading from the town centre in Voss to Bordalsgjelet gorge. Go past the church and follow the gravel path alongside Vangsvatnet lake towards Prestegardsmoen. Cross the small suspension bridge over the river Vosso at the end of Prestegardsmoen and follow signs for Bordalsgjelet gorge. 

Bordalsgjelet is a spectacular natural attraction within walking distance from the town centre. The deep and imposing Bordalsgjelet has been adapted for the visiting public with an information board, a viewpoint and benches for resting tired legs. When the ground isn’t hidden by snow it is possible to follow a purposely-built path that guides you to the gorge. Here you can experience an impressive view of the potholes that have been formed by the ice and river over a period of many thousands of years. Always remember to keep to the marked trails for your own safety!
