Over the years Ekstremsportveko became one of the most important events of its kind
Festival in Voss is unique due to the combination of extreme sports, music, and stunning nature of Western Norway. Ekstremsportveko based on a combination of four elements: kayaking, rafting, kite surfing and freeride represent water element, skydiving, base-jumping, paragliding, hang-gliding – air sports; longboarding, rock climbing, mountain biking – the representatives of the earth element, and the hot fire - the musical component of the festival, where the sound of soul, reggae, funk, hip-hop, R&B and other fashion styles is dominating. Week of extreme sports gathers enthusiasts to “tickle” nerves and to test their strength on land, water and air.

Note: The idea to implement an Extreme Sports Festival in Voss takes shape in the winter of 1998. Today Ekstremsportveko is the largest sport and music festival of its kind, and is hosted every year in Voss, Western Norway. 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. Voss Rafting Club, 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 300-400 volunteers from all over the world contribute to make the festival a huge success.
