With over 216 registered species Voss have a lot to offer bird watchers. There are guided excursions to local woodlands and
marshlands where you may see species such as White-backed Woodpecker, Bluethroat, Icterine Warbler and Common Rose?nch.
LÃ¸naÃ¸yane is one of the best areas, here you will ?nd recently built watch towers and available information on both local and national bird life.
Guided Mountain Hikes & Fishing Trips
Voss Rafting Centre has several guided mountain walks and ?shing trips available throughout the summer season. Should you want to venture out on your own then we would recommend you visit the tourist of?ce ?rst where they have maps of recommended hikes available. Most of these can be reached by catching the cable car from Voss town centre to the top of Mount Hangur, 660 meters above
sea level. Here you will ?nd a cafÃ© with panorama views of the lake and surrounding mountains, this is also the starting point for the many marked walking trails in the area.
The nine hole golf course which opened in Voss May 2005, is of high quality, surrounded by the most breathtaking landscape. An exceptional golf and nature experience.
