Attractions in Voss

Stalheimskleiva Mountain Road, Tvindefossen Waterfall and the panoramic view from Hanguren are popular attractions among visitors to Voss.

Stalheimskleiva mountain road and the Nærøydalen valley

Stalheimskleiva, built between 1842 and 1846, is one of the steepest roads in Northern Europe. The road has 13 hairpin bends, with Stalheim Hotel located at the top overlooking the road and the Nærøydalen Valley.

On the sides of the road you can observe Stalheimsfossen waterfall (413 feet) and Sivlefossen waterfall (465 feet). Stalheimskleiva is located approximately 21 miles north-east of Voss centre, along the E16, in the direction of Oslo.

Tvindefossen waterfall

This is a 498-feet high waterfall situated next to Tvinde Camping, approximately 7 miles north-east of Voss along the E16. If you follow the road behind the campsite, there is a path to the top of the fall. However, please note that the path is not fully secured, so be careful.

When visiting you could also take the opportunity to combine the experience with an easy walk to either Afdal-Prestølen or Leidal-Hustveit. Please contact Voss Tourist Information and CarWalks for route descriptions and maps.

From the café at the top you will have a panoramic view over Vossevangen (Voss town centre) and the mountainous landscape. Hanguren is an excellent starting point for hiking and mountain biking.
