Outdoor Norway’s core value is to help people reconnect with nature.

Yet another core value of ours, one that often gets lost in the excitement and stoke of our tours, is our desire to help people reconnect with themselves.

Why? Simple.

We believe that when we are in tune with our minds and bodies, we are best able to curate an existence with more direction, purpose and love.

To many, the art of slowing down is not only hard to achieve, but hard to accept. From a young age we are taught that success is measured in money and with things.

So our lives are spent speeding along an endless highway, believing that one day we will eventually reach the end, a place that finally allows us to enjoy the fruits of our labor.

Yet what many of us fail to realize is that it is not the destination, but the journey, that we should be paying attention to. Somewhere between endless productivity and pressures, we have lost the ability to slow down and reflect on the lives we are speeding through.

To help you slow down, we have created a five-day summer yoga adventure package, to open the door towards living a life with more awareness. Awareness that brings more gratitude for the things we have, the people we love, and the legacy we want to leave behind.

By combining quality time in nature with the grounding properties of yoga, we aim to realign your inner compass. So after you leave, you can walk confidently in a direction with a redefined passion and purpose.

Located between Norway’s two largest fjords, Voss is known around the world for the thrill-seekers it draws each year.

Yet this quiet mountain town, home to beautiful lakes, green valleys, snow-capped mountains and blue rivers, also is the perfect refuge for those looking for a few days of rest, to be embraced by the healing power of nature

For 6-Day Yoga Adventure Retreat

  Itinerary

Over the course of this adventure package, yoga will be the main thread that ties everything together. Besides the nature-based activity that has been planned each day, we will also have a daily one-hour yoga session that focuses on a particular theme/intention. We will combine flows with open dialogues and breathing exercises.

Day 1 - Arrival – Your 6-day yoga journey begins with your arrival at your hotel. Relax and breathe in the fresh mountain air. Sunset session with a gentle flow yoga to connect with Voss. 

Day 2 - Fjord – Your yoga adventure journey begins in the morning as we meet at Basecamp to wake up our minds and bodies with a gentle flow. After stretching out, it is time for breakfast in the hotel before starting on a classic sea kayaking tour on the Nærøyfjord.

Here you will find 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). Nærøyfjord is an arm of the Sognefjord, which is the largest and best known fjord in Norway and the second longest in the world.

Day 3 - Mountain Your day begins with the sun as we meet at Basecamp to wake up our minds and bodies with a gentle flow. Afterwards it is time for breakfast at the hotel before we head off to hike the well-known Mt. Oksen: standing 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. (8 hours total incl. transportation).

Day 4 - Lake – After enjoying a fresh and local breakfast, you will meet at Basecamp to experience Voss from a different perspective. Join our SUP river tour with an Outdoor Norways expert guide on a great instructional trip on a Grade 1 whitewater river section. In this relatively easy whitewater river section where you will experience a fun but challenging trip, among some of the prettiest areas in Voss, Norway.

We start with a SUP introduction, training the basics, then followed by SUP down the river with our fully qualified guide! 

Back at our base, you will challenge your mind and body as we move through a simple flow that engages muscles often unused in our SUP Board yoga class on the lake.

Day 5 - Forest – After breakfast, the adventure of the day begins with a mountain biking trip on some of Voss’s most beloved single track. With three options available for your two-wheeled activity, anyone, no matter your skill level. You can get to experience an aspect of Voss’s mountain bike scene in comfort and style with our high quality full suspension bikes.

After returning to basecamp and heading back to your accommodation for some leisure time, we will meet at Basecamp to send off the sun with an active flow. 

Day 6 - River– your final day will start with yoga as we meet at Basecamp to wake up our minds and bodies with a gentle flow. Today we will close out your Voss adventure with a final restorative yoga session. Together we will recount the days we shared, what we will take away, and the energy we have gained to return to our lives with a renewed sense of direction.

Enjoy breakfast at the hotel and check-out from your room. You can leave your luggage in the luggage room.

But not before ending your Voss adventure with a bang on the magnificent Raundal River. Here, in the morning, you and the birds 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.

FAQ

Do we need to be physically fit to go on this trip?

Yes, we suggest that all participants in our experiences have good physical health.

Keep in mind, that the hike features over 900m of elevation gain.

If you have any medical concerns but still wish to go on these activities, we always advise consulting with your doctor beforehand.

What is the best time of the year to go on this tour?

Our beautiful Fjord landscapes and rivers transition notably between May and October, each month offering unique attractions for travel.

For the sunniest and most stable weather, June through late August stands out prominently. Hence, our 6-day tour primarily operates during these months.

However, the breathtaking beauty of the Raundal Canyon, Naerøyfjord, and Voss ensures a fantastic experience throughout the entire season.

Should I tip my guide?

Tipping isn't customary in Norway, as it is e.g. in the USA. Our guides put in considerable effort to ensure your experience is both enjoyable and safe, maintaining the high standards set by Outdoor Norway.

While tipping is recognized as a standard practice in the industry and is always welcomed, it's never an obligation. It's entirely up to your discretion whether you choose to leave a tip. Your appreciation for the service provided is greatly valued either way.

Can I leave my bag/luggage at the base?

Yes absolutely, that's not an issue at all.

We have shelves available for storing your belongings while you're out on a tour. Rest assured, there's always a member of our staff present at the base, so your items will be securely looked after— nothing goes missing on our watch!

Do I need to sign a waiver?

Yes.

Upon joining any activity, a waiver acknowledging risks must be read and signed. For minors, a parent or guardian is required to sign the waiver.
