Day three found us on a train heading to Voss. Voss is a small town about an hour and a half east of Bergen. We were headed there because that is where our kayaking tour was due to start from the next day.

We arrived in Voss and were...underwhelmed. After coming from Bergen, a smallish bustling beautiful city, Voss was a wee bit different. A bit older, MUCH smaller, and generally much quieter. We got to our campground (and decided to get a cabin for the night since the forecast for the weekend was rain) and decided to take a hike to the top of the mountain in Voss. We got muddled directions from the tourist information office on how to reach the trail but once we found it we were good to go. Oh, and I should mention that we were racing against time. We decided that we wanted to hike to the top and take the cable car down. But the cable car (and most other things in Voss) stopped running at 5pm. It was 330pm when we set off from town. One person told us the hike would take 4 hours, another said 1 hour is we went "very fast". So very fast we went.

And I should mention that this hiking path was more like a dried up river bed that people used as a guide to the top. And it got VERY muddy since it had been raining all week. That made for some interesting hiking. But we got some amazing views of the town and of the forest. As usual, the view from the top was worth all the blood, sweat and tears it took to get up there. I hate it when Brian is right :)
