Contiki Tour: From Oslo to Voss

When we talk about “Voss”, you might thing about the VOSS mineral water. We have VOSS water in our supermarkets in Switzerland and I never thought that I would ever visit the “birthplace” of this water. After Oslo, we head off for Voss, where we had a short stop before we depart for our next destination. We had a long drive ahead (approx. 6 hours), but I enjoyed every minute. The scenery was breathtaking (Bec called it “Eyegasm” ^.^): beautiful mountains, green meadows, deep blue fjords and the typical Norwegian clapboard houses – it was one of the most spectacular journey that I ever experienced. Speaking about Voss (or Vossevangen), this village is located in the heart of Fjord Norway and gives a lot of amazing activities like hiking, skiing, river rafting, mountain bike courses, zip-lining, paragliding and many other sports activities. We didn’t have time to do any of these activities (expect polar plunge, just next to the river at our hostel), but we had a very relaxing stay in Voss. More eyegasm will follow in the next blog post! Stay tuned for natural wonders and more picturesque scenery!
