Kiellandbu: The magical cabin

Picture yourself wandering through misty mountain valleys, along bubbling creeks and across wooden bridges. In the distance, a raven sends its gloomy call across the mountains. After a steep uphill, you enter flat ground of grass and moss. The fog suddenly lifts, and in front of you lies a small cabin, spectacularly placed near the edge of a cliff. Behind it you catch a glimpse of a narrow fjord, and near the horison: a perfectly white glacier. Welcome to Kiellandbu, a place of mountain magic. ​ Trip outline We start the hike at near Hodnaberg Powerplant, close to the lake called Hamlagrøvatnet. This means we are in the mountains right from the start. At first we follow a gravel road southwards, gaining altitude. Then we exit onto a marked path that forks near Kvålsdalstjørni. We cross a sway bridge with a crystal clear river underneath, then follow the path south through Hardingaskardet. Traversing steeply up the hill towards Sveindalseggi, we can enjoy the increasingly wild scenery around us. We arrive at Kiellandbu after about 2,5 hours. Here we enjoy our lunch and marvel at the amazing view.  ​On the return trip we either follow the same path back to Hodnaberg, or traverse Sveindalsnuten (1065) to enjoy the views. Maybe you might fancy a swim in a cool, clear mountain lake? ​ Reasons to go This place is a true gem.

Round trip to Gråsidetoppen: A Voss Panorama

Travellers visiting Voss will sooner or later have their eyes drawn south towards the line of snowy mountains overlooking Vangsvatnet. This beautiful line of  mountains hints at what contrasts the wild nature around Voss has to offer: harsh mountains with eternal snow, framed by forested hills, bubbling streams and old, charming mountain farms.  On this trip we explore these contrasts, enjoing a round trip that also gives us a superb view of Voss and its surroundings. We follow a path rarely used towards Gråsidetoppen, 1307 metres above sea level. On our way down we visit the inviting, self-catered cabin called Roset. If you are looking for a varied, beatiful and demanding trip through the Voss mountains, this is it!   Trip outline: We start from Hindartveit, a small, idyllic farm in the forested hills overlooking Voss. Following a gravel road towards Smågiljane, we gradually weave our way into the lush mountain forest. Pathfinding is difficult in this area, so trusting local expertise is crucial. We gain the terrain feature known as Rapjahalsen and continue up into Ulvaskaret («wolf’s col»). From here, a wild mountain scenery of snow patches, lakes and rock opens up in front of us. It is not uncommon to observe wild animals such as reindeer in this area. We now head east across Gråsidetoppen (1307), taking in the marvellous view of our surroundings. From our elevated position, Voss appears small, nestled between big mountains. Further east we gain the marked path towards the lovely self-catered cabin at Roset. After a rest, we follow the path back down to our cars.   Physical requirements: This trip is suitable for healthy, fit people with some previous mountain hiking experience.   Necessary equipment: Sturdy hiking shoes or hiking boots, waterproof clothing (shell layer), an extra shirt, an extra sweater, beanie or knit cap, gloves/mittens, sunglasses, sun lotion and and at least 1 litre of water.

Some snow fields. Exposed to inclement weather. Family friendly: Not suitable for children. How to get there: From Voss, follow signs towards Gjernes (Gjernesvegen), past Bordalsgjelet (bridge). After another 500 meters, exit left towards Gjelle. A winding road takes you to the farm called Gjelle. Continue for 300 metres, then exit right on a gravel road towards Hindartveit. Around 10-12 minutes drive in total. Remember to pay the parking fee. Meeting point: Near Hindartveit, no later than 8.30 a.m. Transport service: Yes, but limited.

The viking trail - Sverrestigen

Join us on a challenging hike through historic scenery. During the late fall of 1177, Sverre Sigurdsson and his army of Birkebeiner rebels were fleeing eastwards from Voss. They had been forced to retreat by an army of angry farmers. Outnumbered and hard pressed, Sverre and his men had to escape into Raundalen by climbing a steep hillside. With a guide from Wild Voss at your side, you get to reenact this dramatic event.   ​ ​ Trip outline. Raundalen is a 25 kilometer long valley that stretches from the landmark of Rastalii, all the way to Upsete. Thanks to its wild nature and fascinating history, Raundalen is the perfect valley for hiking. A rare gem, just a few minutes out of Voss! ​ Sverrestigen is one of the most remarkable trails in Raundalen. The trail starts close to Rastalii, the deep gorge that shapes an impressive entrance gate to the valley. Our hike starts right here, in this wild and impressive location. From here we follow in the footsteps of the Viking king named Sverre Sigurdsson!   Some 840 years ago, in late October 1177, Sverre Sigurdsson approached Voss from the east. He was the leader of the Birkebeiner-rebels based in eastern Norway. Supported by an army of seasoned fighters, Sverre was on his way to Bjørgvin (Bergen). He was campaigning for the throne, and had many enemies. Unexpectedly, Sverre and his men were stopped near Voss by an army of farmers assembled from the nearby villages. King Sverre, outnumbered, was engaged in battle and forced to escape back the way he came. The farmers had blocked the normal passage east. Instead, Sverre and his army were forced to climb past a steep and exposed cliff section near the mouth of the valley called Raundalen. This route still holds the name «Sverre’s path» (Sverrestigen).   We make it to the starting point of our hike by catching the train to Klyve, just a couple of stops out of Voss. From Klyve we quickly reach the start of Sverrestigen. The trail is steep and exposed, and can be impressive (we can choose another trail in case the conditions become too difficult). The trails leads us to Klyvsnolten (730 m), at the top of Rastalii.   Before we continue on the ridge, we stop for a lunch break and enjoy the unique panorama of all the mountains of Voss. The next stage brings us to Fjossstølen, a typical mountain-farm area. There we meet the old Raundal trail, and follow it down through the forest to Klyve. The local farmers had blocked this very trail back in 1177. We can thus enjoy both perspectives of this episode of the Norwegian History.   After a nice walk downhill, we land on the modern Raundal road, and take the train back to Voss. ​ ​ Reasons to go This trip combines spectacular nature with an exciting history, allowing for an authentic experience through the wild nature of Raundalen. If conditions don't allow for an ascent of the steep Sverrestigen route, we still get to enjoy a lovely hike through lush forests away from the crowds. ​ We have guides speaking English, French, German, Spanish and Italian. Please let us know if you have language preferences, and we’ll try to accommodate you. ​ ​ Season and availability Daily departures from Mai 10 to October 31.  ​ During the busiest weeks of summer, we might not have available guides every day. Please don’t hesitate to send us an email if it looks like the trip is unavailable online. We’ll try to find a solution for you. ​ ​ ​Physical requirements ​ Sverrestigen is a steep and exposed route with few in-place safety installations. Our guide brings all the necessary safety equipment, such as a rope. Participants should not have a fear of heights, and should have some hiking experience from rugged terrain. In wet or slippery conditions, we will follow a less exposed rote to the top.    Easier variations are possible, and will be less demanding.      ​ ​ Necessary equipment On this hike you will need the following equipment: ​ Sturdy hiking shoes or hiking boots. Waterproof clothing (shell layer). Small rucksack (20 litres). An extra t-shirt and an extra sweater. Beanie or a cap. Sunglasses and sun lotion Some snacks or packed lunch and a water bottle.
