Snowshoeing and stargazing near Voss Resort

From NOK 1'290

Join our guided evening trip on snowshoes into the winter mountains of Voss. We use the chairlift at Voss Resort to gain easy access to the mountain overlooking Voss. We put on head lamps and snowshoes and step away from the resort area. With luck, we get to enjoy the starry sky high above us. At our campsite, we build a bonfire, enjoy a hot drink, a light meal and the deep stillnes of the winter mountains. 

 

Trip outline

On this short trip, you get to really enjoy the wonders of winter. The mountains around Voss get a lot of snow during winter. That's why Voss has become one of the top ski destinations of Norway. Just outside the town centre lies Voss Resort, with chair lifts and groomed slopes. A few evenings each week, the resort is open for evening skiing. 

We meet near the base of the chair lift, and suit up for an excursion in the winter mountains. We provide all the necessary clothing and warm boots for you. Snow goggles and a head lamp will enable us to find the way even when it snows and blows. 

The ride up the chair lift is a fun experience in itself, taking us swiftly above the tree tops to the top of mount Hanguren, 810 meters above sea level. We put on our snowshoes and ski poles, and set out on a relatively easy walk through the snow. Along the way, your guide will talk about Norway, the local culture and make sure you're feeling warm and comfortable. 

As we escape the resort area, we turn on our head lamps and make our own trail through the deep snow, trusting our sturdy snowshoes. At our premade campsite, we build a bonfire and enjoy something hot to drink and a bite to eat. A perfect spot for contemplation and leaving the civilised world behind us for a few moments. 

We return to the chair lift before closing time, and enjoy a spectacular ride back down to where we started. 

Reasons to go

For a quick escape into the wintery mountains, this is your perfect adventure. By combining the easy access of the chair lift and the lovely terrain outside of the slopes, we can offer you a non-technical and family-friendly snow experience.
