Ekstremsportveko is the largest extreme sport festival in the world, and is hosted every year in Voss, Western Norway. We host competitions in kayaking, rafting, mtb-bmx, skateboarding, skydiving, paragliding, hanggliding, multisport, freeride, big air, climbing, speed riding, cliff diving, biketrial, wind tunnel, BASE and longboarding. 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.
The various sports are the main focus of Ekstremsportveko. However, the music program has become an important part of the total festival experience. The last three days of the event, national and international artists spice up the festival with their vibrant music within the genres; pop, rock, funk and reggae!
Ekstremsportveko is owned by the non-profit organization Stiftinga Ekstreme Voss – “The Ekstreme Voss Foundation”. Voss Active, Voss Kayak Club, Voss Hang and Paraglider Club and Skydive Voss are the four local clubs who represent Ekstreme Voss. There are two people working in the administration full time all year round. In addition to this, Ekstremsportveko rely heavily on positive and hard working people. Every year 800+ volunteers from all over the world contribute to make the festival a huge success.
