“Nice”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

Very nice little town with a quaint 12th century church, great views and little cafes. Spent an hour here before catching the Flamsbana.

“Fantastic ski resort at Easter”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2012 via mobile

Cable car just above the railway station takes you direct to the slopes. There is another shorter journey up at the other end of the village too. Once up there you can hire downhill or cross country gear and then you are straight on to a fantastic network of lifts and slopes, or tracks for cross country, taking you right along and up the mountain side above the town. We were there 9/4, no snow on the roads yet 10 mins in the cable car had us in snow three feet deep or more with the slopes and lifts virtually deserted. Lots of variety for a novice or intermediate skier, at a reasonable price and so late in the season.
Not too much in the village by way of sights or apres ski, but option of a fantastic trip down to the fjord at Flam by train and back by ferry and bus, or an hour by train takes you to Bergen which is a lovely old town.

“Great Winter resort”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2012

The slopes at Voss resort is great. We went to Bavallen in our winter holiday. The familyslope is perfect when bringing kids. It's about 5 km and not steep. I have a 7 year old daughter and a 9 year old son. It was great fun for both of them. There are also good alternatives for the adults :-)

“Unforgettable Voss visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2011

Upon arrival in Bergen from Paris, we took a train to Voss. It was a scenic ride from Bergen to Voss. Everyone speaks English so there is no problem with language when we asked for direction or information. Our stay in the cabin turned out to be very enjoyable as well. Next day, we had a day trip out to Eidfjord, beautiful scenary!
We would definitely recommend anyone who wishes to visit Norway to go to Voss!
