Experience Voss

  • Tours

In July 2019 one of the most modern and largest mountain gondolas in Europe opened in Voss. The spectacular gondola starts from Voss railway station and goes all the way to the top of Hangurstoppen (820 meters asl). On this tour you travel from Bergen to Voss and experience this beautiful village from above!

Your Voss adventure starts from the Bergen Railway Station, where you embark on a comfortable train ride to Voss. Arriving in Voss, the gondola is situated only a few steps from the station, ready to take you to the top of Mount Hanguren with the best view of the mountains surroundig Voss. 

After being amazed by the view, mountains and perhaps even an excellent meal on the top restaurant, you take the gondola back to Voss centre. In Voss you can choose to add activities like rafting, hiking indoor skydiving or more! You can return to Bergen by train the same day, but we highly recommend spending a night or two in the active village of Voss!

Voss Gondol

The new gondola rail in Voss is very stable, compared to gondolas that usually hang on a cable. The track has a free span of a whopping 900 meters from the lower station to the first mast!

At the top station there are areas for recreation and activities. During summer there is a myriad of adventures to be had. You can go hiking (both short and long hikes), biking or even paragliding. In winter, skiing is the main pastime, and you will get access to the many slopes right from the top station.

A brand new restaurant is also based at the top station. With seating capacity for 450 people, this will be Voss' largest restaurant. Here, you can enjoy both hot and cold food and drinks, based on local ingredients and suppliers.

Stay over and make the most of your trip to Voss

We highly recommend that you take your time during the tour, by staying over in Voss and adding some exciting activities to your tour. Voss is a mecca for hiking trips and nature experiences. 

One of these hiking trips, include the so-called «Viking Trail», which follows in the footsteps of the viking king Sverre Sigurdsson, who went through the beautiful Raundalen Valley on his way to Bergen to campaign to be king. Unlike Sverre, you will not be confronted by an army of angry farmers here, but you can follow his escape route, «The Sverre path» through the mountain.

For those looking for some action, without necessarily planning to BASE jump off a mountain, there’s a wide range of sporty activities to enjoy: white water rafting, high ropes courses, indoor skydiving and snowshoe hiking during the winter. Most of these activities are family friendly and you can see all activities in Voss HERE.
