NEED TO KNOW
LOCATION Voss is in the heart of the spectacular fjord country of southern Norway SKIABLE AREA 24 miles (40 km) of marked runs, a good range of backcountry and a network of cross-country ski trails SEASON Nov–Apr
ACCESSIBILITY Good road access and the Bergen-Oslo train stops in town
Voss is a relatively small resort, but there’s enough here to occupy anyone for a week. The mix of downhill runs accessed by the cute red cable car from the center of the town is surprisingly varied and offers sublime sunset views across the region’s pastel-shaded whaleback mountains, which have a real “call of the wild” feel about them.
There is also a vast network of cross- country trails emanating from the town.
As well as skiing, visitors can also enjoy a spectacular winter rail journey to the shores of mighty Sognefjord. With so much to do, you won’t easily get bored at this lakeside resort.
Getting There and Around There are regular trains to and from Bergen (approximately 1 hour) and Oslo (5–6 hours). Road access from Bergen is also good in all but the worst weather.
When to Go Nov–Apr. It is possible to ski after this but lift access may not be available.
