Voss in Western Norway is arguably the top winter destination, especially when it comes to fresh track skiing. But Voss has something to offer – also in the summer months.
At Vossvind Indoor Skydiving you can soar like a bird and experience the feeling of flying through the air in a safe indoor environment. The center caters for novices and professionals alike, something that many Norwegian activities seem to do.
Just 75 minutes from Bergen by train, on Norway’s west coast, the small city of Voss is known as the country’s capital of extreme sports. A huge variety of exhilarating activities are available, with the Vossvind wind tunnel one of its most exciting attractions.
Indoor skydiving is not dependent on the weather, and so the facility is open all year round for anybody who’d like to take flight – you don’t need any specialist skills, meaning everybody aged five and above can enter.
Whether you’re a pro or a rookie flyer, this is the perfect destination to visit with family and friends, or for a unique company outing. A variety of packages are available, with even the basic option offering the equivalent air time to four skydives from 12,000 feet, with experienced and skillful instructors to guide you through the entire process from start to finish.
My two 90-second ‘flights’ were a blast and proved to be one of my most fantastic experiences last summer.
Aside from the skydiving, Voss offers a huge array of activities in the summer, including some of the best rafting in the country. Sessions at Vossvind start at 765NOK pp.
