From the center of Voss, follow the gravel road along Vangsvatnet inwards into Prestegardsmoen. At the end of Prestegardsmoen, you cross the bridge over the river Vosso. After the bridge, turn right, along the river and follow the signs to Bordalsgjelet.
Bordalsgjelet is a spectacular natural attraction within walking distance of the center. The deep and dramatic Bordalsgjelet is designed for the public with an information board, vantage point, and benches. When there is no snow and ice, there is also an adapted path you can follow inland. Here you get a good view of the fantastic potholes that ice and the river have shaped over the millennium, but remember, for your safety: stick to the marked paths!
