Voss Gondola is the largest and most modern mountain gondola in Northern Europe. The trip with the gondola supplies scenic panoramic views and with its comfortable cabins, the gondola takes you to the top in less than 9 minutes!
Safely at the top, you are ready for the next step of the tour, a 7 km bike ride from Hangurstoppen to Voss Active's base at Skulestadmo. The bike tour starts along a gravel road that takes you down towards Tråstølen. From here there is a paved road to Voss Active's rafting base. The cycle route is partly steep and it is important to take breaks to rest your hands and feet and embrace the beauty of nature surrounding you.
