Attractions in Voss
Explore the variety of nature and culture attractions in Voss!
There are many attractions and places to explore in Voss. We have the biggest and most modern gondola in North of Europe. At Voss Folk Museum the old farm buildings are standing just as they were when people lived and farmed here several hundred years ago. Bordalsgjelet Gorge is a beautiful and unique nature attraction, where you can see how the ice and water has shaped the landscape over thousands of years.
The attractions of Voss lies before you - what do you want to explore first?
If you want to explore our nature up close we recommend visiting one of the waterfalls around Voss, like Tvindefossen eller Skjervsfossen. Bordalsgjelet is within walking distance from the town center and even the walk there is scenic and beautiful. A trip to Stalheimskleiva is also a must. This is one of the steepest roads in northeren Europe.
Voss has a lot of history - luckily it is well perserved. In Finnesloftet you can experience a feast hall from year 1295! A visit to Vangskyrkja, the curch in the centre of Voss from year 1277 is also recommended. At Voss Folkemuseum, Mølstertunet, you can get a wonderful insight into our history.

Bergslitræet is a small museum located in Prestegardsmoen, which contains documentation about the painter Knud Bergslien and the sculptor Brynjulf Bergslien (his brother). They were significant artists in the Norwegian national romanticism movement, and many are surprised to discover that they were born and raised in Voss. Bergslitræet is part of the Bergsliløypa and includes a museum, café, and museum shop.
