    The top offers a 360 panoramic view of Samlafjorden, Sørfjorden, Eidfjorden and Granvinsfjorden, as well as Norway’s third largest glacier: Folgefonna.

With three options available for two-wheel explorations, anyone, no matter their skill level, can explore Voss’ mountain biking scene in comfort and style on high-quality full suspension mountain bikes.

The sweat you build up while paddling will be rewarded with cooling swims in clear river pools and waterfalls found along the way.

    You’ll be done rafting at around 1:30 pm and this officially marks the end of your adventure. Say goodbye to your guides and if you’d like to keep on exploring the area, just ask them for some recommendations.

We have done: kayak, mountain biking, paddle and kanoe at Outdoor Norway with our family of 4, one 10 years old and one 14. Each time we had a great time, the guides were really nice with the kids and we always felt secured. We were not very skilled but they always adapted the tempo and gave very good explanations. The equipement was excellent and in very good condition (Super cool mountain bikes :-)). We really felt like they were here for us to have a good time unlike another club in Voss it didn’t feel like a tourist cash machine, it felt family like and chill. We highly recommend Outdoor Norway for families but it certainly works great for experienced folks too, the guides are highly skilled and very playful 🙂 Big thanks to our guides Ruben, Mattis and Miro.

We did a mountain bike and rafting combo with outdoor Norway and I can’t recommend it enough! I will mention that decent athletic abilities is required and come prepared to sweat and work hard with these activities.
Genis was our mountain bike guide and he was top tier! Because we were the only two on the ride, he was able to adapt to our skill level. He was patient, supportive and encouraging.
Suman was our primary rafting guide, along with his colleague Mohan in the other boat and Luis behind the wheel and the camera lens. All three were fantastic. Special shoutout to Suman who took our safety very seriously but was also very engaging, encouraging and fun. All guides were happy to share their stories and newfound love for Norway. Thank you!!
