Join the hiking & biking workshop in Voss, 9th-11th of September 2024

Norway is an attractive destination for hiking and cycling. Active holidays that include activities like hiking in the mountains and countryside and cycling are constantly evolving and increasing in popularity. This is also a type of holiday that is offered throughout the Norway.

However, you may be unsure about which parts of Norway are best suited for hiking and cycling. You will receive tips on this during the workshop that will take place in Voss from 9th-11th of September 2024.

The workshop in brief

We invite you to take part in this workshop, where our aim is to bring together about 25 Norwegian hiking and cycling destinations and operators, and around 25 international  tour operators that are specialized in active holidays. The workshop will be held at Scandic Hotel Voss.

Pre- and posttours

We will organise pre-posttours in cooperation with destination companies in Norway, highlighting the different hiking and biking products Norway has to offer. These tours descriptions & highlights will be opened mid-April and all registered buyers will be able to make a selection of their prioritized tours. 
By mid-May we will communicate to the buyers the tour they have been allocated a place on. 

Who can register to a tour? If the company participates at the workshop in Voss, the company can send a representative from the same company to the pre/posttour.

Visit Voss has arrangered a number of morning activities for participants. These are free of charge, and they will be released in detail after registration date, for all registered participants.

Voss, Erik Østlie



Welcome to Voss!

We are very happy to welcome you to our small town, Voss, for the Hike and Bike-workshop. To many we might be known as the extreme sport capital, and we are, but we also have a lot to offer to the less extreme guests. 

During the workshop we will give you a taste of what Voss has to offer. We have some amazing companies here that have offered to give you the Voss-experience, through our morning activities 10th of September. 

In Voss we are very focused on how our activity impacts nature, and that is why we are making this trip as green as possible for you. When you land at Bergen airport you can travel all the way to Scandic Hotel in Voss by only a few steps and with very zero emissions. For our activities you will be able to start from the town centre with no transportation needed, which makes it easy and leaves no impact on our beautiful nature. For food you will mostly get local produce and dishes with ingredients that are grown at the time of season.  

Welcome to Voss!
