From November to February there are guided walks every Tuesday evening leaving from the town centre at 18.00 for 15 NOK (approx. £1.70). Group cross country trips are available on Sundays from January to May.
One of the great attractions of Norway is the spectacular scenery - the journey from Bergen to Voss is a highlight in its own right. Travel past fjords, pine forests and dramatic rock formations as you wind through the countryside to the mountains.
The best way to admire the landscape is by joining the train and experiencing Northern Europe's highest railway and one of the world's top 20 rail adventures. The Norwegian trains are modern and comfortable with large windows allowing you to take in the scenery. This is a relaxing and rewarding journey - the perfect way to get you to and from Voss!
Take a day trip to the fjords and discover the Flåm Railway. This is one of Norway’s most visited tourist attractions and is easily accessible from Voss as a day trip. The train from Voss ascends to 1,300 metres taking you across the roof of Norway over the Hardangervidda, the largest mountain plateau in Europe and Norway’s largest national park.
You pass the Hardangerjøkulen glacier, which was filmed in Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes back, before reaching the mountain station of Myrdal. From here you join the Flåm Railway - a technical masterpiece that twists 12.5 miles descending half a mile to the valley bottom through dramatic scenery, waterfalls and finally meeting Aurlandsfjord at the base of the Aurlandsdalen valley. This is known as Norway’s Grand Canyon, rich in nature and with breathtaking scenery - all in all a must do trip!
Indoor skydiving - If you’ve ever wanted to fly but don’t fancy jumping out of a plane this is a fantastic experience! Full gear and teaching included, you’ll be soaring in no time.
Stalheim Folk museum - This museum shows a timeline of the changes in rural Norway from the late middle ages to today. Located at the Stalheim Hotel, there are objects from both farm and manor house life.
