Voss, Norway in a Nutshell Hub, Arrival Photos

Voss(evangen) is a tourist town for two main reasons. The first is that it is the extreme sports capital of Norway, like Queenstown in New Zealand, providing skiing and snowy sports in winter and adrenalin sports like ski-diving, kayaking and paragliding in summer.

Voss’s other main attraction is that it is the start or finish of the Norway in a Nutshell trip, including Norway’s (and world’s I think) second-rated  fjord, the Naeoroyfjord. Only the Naeroyfjord and the Geirangerfjord are UNESCO sites.

More about that later, because although on my first day in Voss I just booked into my hostel at Evangervegen 68, and walked around Lake Vangsvatnet to the Bordalsgjelet gorge, it provided lots of beautiful photos as the bright afternoon lakeside sun was eaten up by evening’s cloud mountains.
