Imagine flying, that’s exactly how paragliding is. It’s the opposite of skydiving, you can fly in many directions, you can continuously ascend and descend. One of the best things about this extreme sport is that you can see the view for minutes or even hours if you can last that long in the sky. It’s a remarkable world up there.
Paragliding at Voss
Voss and Ekstremsportveko is a mecca for paragliding at all levels. Both novice and experienced pilots have a great time in Voss whether it is practicing flying, long-distance or acro. In July 2019 Voss got a brand new gondola. The new gondola takes you from the train- and bus station in Voss and to Mount Hanguren (820 masl) in under nine minutes. This is the largest and most modern mountain gondola in Northern Europe.
The main meeting point for paragliders in Voss is by the landing next to the gondola. When the wind conditions are good, you´ll find the keen pilots by the landing/gondola around 09.00. If it´s not flyable from Hanguren we will organize transport from Minigolfen Cafè to other take-offs. .
In sports without a federation, or where this is not decided or clear, Ekstremsportveko will at all times rely on its principles and values. That is why Ekstremsportveko condemns Russia's invasion of Ukraine.
Ekstremsportveko excludes Russia and Belarus from organized sports competitions, championships and cups. Athletes and guests from these countries can participate in Ekstremsportveko outside of organized competitions, championships and cups, where one does not represent Russia or Belarus. The exclusion does not apply to athletes under 18 years of age (junior). If an athlete chooses to circumvent these regulations, one may be deleted from the starting list and/or the result list.
