The adrenaline capital of Norway

If you are craving outdoor adventures, extreme surroundings and Norwegian food specialities, Voss will not let you down.

In Voss you are greeted by snowy mountain tops, valleys and forests, rivers, waterfalls and lakes. The town, home to around 14,000 inhabitants, is located in-between the famous fjords of Sognefjord and Hardangerfjord and can offer outdoor adventures all year round.

It’s not a coincidence that Voss has a world-renowned reputation as Norway’s adventure capital. For nearly 200 years the town has been welcoming visitors looking for adventures based on nature, local culture and traditions. For the adrenalin seekers, few places in Norway has more to offer. Bungee jumping, skydiving, paragliding, and white water rafting are just some of the activities worth mentioning.

Voss is the skiing metropolis of Fjord Norway, with runs suitable for the entire family. The two ski centres in Voss feature more than 55 kilometres of alpine runs and around 20 ski lifts. In spring, summer and autumn, Voss offers an impressive assortment of outdoor activities, including hiking, mountain biking, kayaking, canyoning and more.

The region has a long food heritage and if you are looking for local traditional tastes, you should visit Smalahovetunet. Here, in a farmhouse dating from the 1700s, you will be served traditional style lamb meat (“smalahove” and “pinnakjøt”), sour cream porridge, and cured and seasoned meat, in addition to other local specialities.

The town centre is situated approximately 57 metres above sea level, and many people are surprised to find themselves surrounded by mountains. Throughout the year Voss hosts a range of events that have become well-known nationally as well as internationally, such as Vossa Jazz and Ekstremsportveko (“the Extreme Sports Week”).

Located less than an hour from Bergen and the fjords, Voss is an ideal base for exploring Fjord Norway.
