Voss is a resort with a spectacular lakeside setting on the west coast of Norway.

It has recently invested in a state-of-the-art cable car.

“Nestled right in the heart of Fjord Norway between two famous fjords, Sognefjorden and Hardangerfjorden, Voss has a stunning lakeside setting with the skiing on Mount Hanguren as its backdrop,” said Andy Hemingway, the Scandinavian Product Manager for Ski Safari that is now offering the resort.

See here for further details.

Norway Home of Skiing is a brand that offers skiing at some of the best resorts in Norway: Geilo, Beitostolen, Hafjell, Kvitfjell, Norfjell, Narvik and Myrkdalen.

“The joining of Voss Resort to the NHOS family is simply fantastic news and a long time in the making,” said the CEO of NHOS, Trevor de Villiers.

“The new lift now makes Voss the perfect fit to the NHOS portfolio and complements the Mykdalen product perfectly as they are such different products making the West Coast of Norway’s ski offering even more exciting, with direct flights to Bergen every day from London Gatwick and Luton.”

Now here at PlanetSKI we are sad to report that we have not skied in Voss.

But we have made a few turns in its neighbouring resort of Myrkdalen.

And we have done this:

Skiing in Norway is about far more than making a few turns on the slopes it is the unique winter experience on offer.

One we have sampled many times over the years:

In Voss the thigh-burning Horgaletten downhill is recommended and if you’re into off-piste Voss is renowned for its powder snow.

Ski Safari offers two main accommodation options:

Turrets of Fleoischer Hotel

Voss, Norway

Bavallen Cabins

Voss, Norway

As we said PlanetSKI has not skied in Voss – yet.

We look forward to rectifying that situation soon…
