MOUNTAIN & FJORD NORWAY ADVENTURE PACKAGE

After an incredibly hectic year, there is no doubt that many of us will be looking ahead to the summer of 2021 for exciting, fulfilling and memorable outdoor adventures. That is why we have created a new FOUR-DAY adventure package containing SEA KAYAKING, HIKING, CYCLING, SUP BOARDING, MOUNTAIN BIKING and RAFTING. For those who are searching for a multi-day experience, filled with great experiences, fresh air, and hours spent in nature, this is for you!

Located between Norway’s two largest fjords, Voss is known around the world for the thrill-seekers it draws each year. The scenic mountain town boasts beautiful lakes, green valleys, gorgeous snow-capped mountains and sparkling blue rivers. Whether looking for adrenaline, time in nature, or a charming place to slow down and reconnect, we invite you to settle in, sit back, and sink into Voss and all it has to offer.

ITINERARY

Explore Norwegian nature from the valley floor to the mountain tops and gain a unique perspective on the world around you:

DAY ONE: FJORD – your four-day adventure kicks off at Basecamp with a classic sea kayaking tour on either the Hardangerfjord or Sognefjord (weather dependent). Each option offers incredible views of cascading waterfalls, unique nature and wildlife, and historic farms that have been clinging to the mountainside for centuries. Along the way we will make a couple of stops to enjoy not only snacks and refreshments, but to photograph some of the area’s most iconic landscapes. A full day of quiet, peace and tranquility in Norway’s iconic fjord region before returning to Voss and checking into your accommodation. (7 hours total incl. transportation).

DAY TWO: MOUNTAIN – after breakfast, you will be picked up and taken to Mt. Oksen: a classic and breathtaking mountain that stands a little over 1,200 meters above sea level. The trail begins in Tjoflot and winds its way nearly 1000 meters vertically from the car park through steep forest, before opening up and offering views of the surrounding fjords and mountains. The top offers a 360 degree panorama picture of Samlafjorden, Sørfjorden, Eidfjorden and Granvinsfjorden, as well as Norway’s third largest glacier: Folgefonna. The day will end back at your accommodation where you will have the rest of the day at leisure. (7 hours total incl. transportation).

DAY THREE: LAKE – after breakfast, day three starts at Basecamp and will be split into two activities so you may make the most out of Voss’s central landmark: Lake Vangsvatnet. The morning warms you up with a road cycling tour around the lake – approximately 22 kilometers. Along the way you will hear fun facts and historical retellings of the region, and how it made its mark in Norway’s history books. You will also stop at Bordalsgjelet – a deep and scenic gorge with a fun hiking trail. (3 hours)

After a lunch break and some time at leisure, you will reconvene back at Basecamp to enjoy the second activity of the day: a self-guided SUP boarding tour. Propelled by your paddle, you will get to enjoy Voss from a different, and slower, perspective than in the morning. Take your time as you explore the lake’s shoreline, admiring the small life that finds refuge there, as well as experiencing the stunningly clear, blue water that flows in from the Vosso River. After returning to Basecamp, you may return to your accommodation and relax for the rest of the evening. (2 hours)

DAY FOUR: RIVER– after breakfast, you will meet at Basecamp for your final day of adventure, beginning with the magnificent Raundal River. Here you will explore Norwegian nature from an inflatable raft while learning new skills, challenging yourself, and working as a team. Known as a northern European mecca for whitewater kayaking, the river offers playful sections for rafters looking to enjoy grade III rapids. The sweat you build up while paddling will be rewarded with cooling swims in the clear river pools and waterfalls found along the way. (3.5 hours incl. transportation)

After returning to base and enjoying a lunch break, your adventures will be wrapped up with a mountain biking ride on some of Voss’s most beloved single track. With three options available for two-wheel exploration, anyone, no matter their skill level, can explore Voss’s mountain bike scene in comfort and style with our full suspension Cube bikes. From here you will say good bye and head back to your hotel, for one final night of R&R before you must check out the following morning. (3 hours)

WE’VE GOT YOU COVERED

PEACE OF MIND POLICIES

At Outdoor Norway, our aim is to ensure your entire experience with us, from the moment you book your Adventure Holiday to the moment you set foot back on home turf, is as enjoyable and stress-free as possible.

Once you book your spot(s), you’re going! This allows you the freedom to start looking for flights and make other arrangements right away. Contrary to many other tour operators, we will never cancel a trip due to low numbers or other passenger cancellations.

3. 14-DAY RISK-FREE BOOKING WINDOW

After putting down a deposit, you can cancel at any point during the first 14 days after booking and get a 100% refund. This buys you 2 weeks to sort out flights, vacation time, etc. and not have to worry about someone else taking your spot(s).

4. LIFETIME DEPOSITS

Our Lifetime Deposit allows any of our Clients forced to delay a departure or wanting to switch tour package

altogether the ability to apply their initial deposit towards a later scheduled date or another Person at no extra charge. As long as you give us 90 days notice, your deposit will be good forever, whether you use it for the same trip or transfer it to another one. A Lifetime Deposit has no expiration date and can be used for any departure – provided room is still available.

Simply put, we want to ensure you can enjoy the Outdoor Norway experience you want, at a time that works best for you.

A Lifetime Deposit is also transferable, meaning that you can transfer your deposit to another Friend as a gift.
