Voss is a beautiful town located in the heart of Norway’s fjord region. Stay at any hotel in the area and you’re guaranteed to have views of the mountains from your bedroom window. I stopped in Voss on the Norway in a Nutshell tour.
The town is small so you don’t have much variety in terms of shopping or restaurants but the locals can help point you in the right direction. There are plenty of stores which sell locally made crafts and fashion so if you do buy something, shop there.
Voss is known as the ski metropolis of western Norway so if you are visiting in winter and you have the time, visit one of the two ski centres and make the most of the mountains. If you’re visiting in summer then make the most of the natural environment and walk or cycle through some of the parks surrounding the town.
If you have the time to get out to Voss, be sure to. You won’t regret it! It’s a beautiful town surrounded by the nature Norway is famous for.
