We've seen many waterfalls and fjords during our trip around Norway but this gorge was gorgeous! There are many short little trails to different areas of the gorge. The water is so clear and the gorge is incredibly deep.

We went to the Voss Camping office and they gave us a map with directions. After driving through Voss, go over the bridge and turn right on Gjernesvegan. If you keep following this road you will see a small green sign that says Bordalsgjelet. We parked in a gravel dead end and then walked about 5 minutes following the signs to get to the paths. We were there for probably 30 minutes.

This is definitely a hidden gem and I would totally recommend this to anyone who has some spare time in Voss.

A prior review states the pedestrian bridge is gone but that isn't true. We took the trail along the lake, past the campground (loads of school kids playing volleyball and cricket), through the woods, OVER THE BRIDGE (with great open areas for photos) and then through a residential area to the gorge. The gorge is beautiful, glad we got to see it!

This is a lovely walk from Voss centre, just follow the lake side or the path through the woodland past the campsite. The path is well signed all the way. Lovely views of the lake initially, then crossing the river via a bridge, which has a couple of viewing platforms. From here it is a climb through some residential streets and down tracks to the gorge and bridge and the car park. A short narrow path takes your a short distance down into the gorge. Well worth a visit, the rushing waters through this rocky chasm are an impressive sight and sound. There are also a couple of short paths down to the old bridge and alongside part of the river. Certainly worth a visit.

Once back over the two bridges, you can walk right along the lake side if you prefer back to Voss, for a change of scenery on the way back.

It is a nice walk for 1 hour from the town center through the settlements. Make sure that you go through Prestegardsmoen and over the walkers bridge. You can use Google Maps ti find the location. My kids loved it.

Some previous reviewers mentioned it was a bit confusing to find. We used Google maps on the phone and had no trouble, but here's the easy directions:

Walk along the lakeside trail from town with the lake on your right past the campground.
Cross the footbridge over the river then walk up the steep road to the right.
Follow the road as it curves up and to the left after about 500 meters and follow the signs from there to turn left, then right at the school and into the gorge.

The gorge is verdant, lush, and lovely. There are three spots where trails lead down into the gorge and each one is worth checking out. Roundtrip time walking from downtown Voss along with taking time seeing the gorge is about 2-3 hours depending upon your pace.

If visiting Voss this should not be missed! It is an easy walk to the site of the gorge and not a particularly difficult walk down to the viewing point. The view is spectacular.

A great 30 minute hike from the train station in beautiful surroundings. Easy for kids from age 6. Definitely a steep descent at the end which can be slippery when wet. The gorge is beautiful and worth the trip.

We started to walk from town, but found the walk not very inviting, so drove to the parking area near this gorge and walked to it via a short trail. It is a magical spot! Don't miss it if you are in Voss.

This was a wonderful way to spend an hour or two when in Voss. From the city center it's about a 45-minute walk, which itself is quite enjoyable. There are several viewing areas to see the waterfall and the gorge itself. We did it on a cold and rainy day (so it was a bit slippery), but it was still a nice way to get outside and enjoy the area. They also had parking, so if you're traveling via car, it is very accessible.

A must visit if in Voss. Around 40 min walk from city centre and well worth it. Breathing views of scenic nature of Norway. Recomended for nature and outdoor activity lovers
