Voss Cup

The Voss Cup was first held in 1991. It started as a pure grass court tournament and 93 teams participated in the first year.

The Voss Cup has since increased steadily and is today the largest children’s tournament in Norway. Around 700 teams with approx. 7,000 participants in the form of players, coaches, and team leaders.  During the Vossa Cup weekend, the population is more than doubled. Book your cabin early.

Ekstremsportveko is the largest extreme sports festival in the world and is hosted every year in Voss. Competitions in kayaking, rafting, Mtb, skateboarding, skydiving, paragliding, hang gliding, big air, climbing, cliff diving, wind tunnel, and longboarding are amongst the activities this week. For one whole week, national and international athletes compete and challenge themselves in the elements. However, competitions are not always the main focus for the athletes. The sharing of knowledge, when hundreds of top athletes are gathering this last week of June, is just as important. Accommodations are scarce to come around at this time so book early.
