The Coastal Path in Voss – The Shores of Lake Vangsvatnet

The shores of Lake Vangsvatnet allow you to indulge in a slower pace of life…

Vangsvatnet…or, just yards away, something a little faster.

Paraglider at VangsvatnetI would have liked to have given both a go, but our time in Voss had come to an end.  We had to catch the train to Bergen on Norway’s west coast.

In the meantime, I cannot recommend Voss highly enough.  It has everything for my sort of trip:

  • Regular train services linking it to Oslo and Bergen, on one of the world’s most beautiful lines
  • Easy access to the fjords
  • Fleischer’s Hotel with its enormous character and history
  • Beautiful countryside with its mountains, lakes, gorges and tarns
  • Skydiving, both indoor and outdoor, as well as paragliding and all sorts of other adventure sports
  • Skiing in the winter, with ski school

What’s not to like?!?  See you again, Voss, but farewell for now!


Date of Visit:  20-23 July 2014
