Voss is the perfect spot for everyone who is interested in sports and activities. There is something here for everyone's taste! The varied mountain terrain around Voss makes it an excellent base for walks and mountain hiking. There are plenty of lakes and rivers for fishing and good terrain for cycling and golfing. The more adventurous can try parachuting, paragliding, rafting, river boarding and river paddling. During the yearly event "Ekstremsportveko" (the Extreme Sports Week) there are competitions in skydiving, BASE, rafting, kayaking, climbing and much more. Winter season lasts from December to April.
