Ekstremsportveko host competitions in kayaking, rafting, mtb-bmx, kiting, skydiving, paragliding, hanggliding, multisport, freeride, big air, climbing, BASE and longboarding. For one week national, as well as international athletes compete and challenge themselves in the elements. However, competitions are not always central for all the sports. The sharing of knowledge, when hundreds of top athletes are gathering this last week of June, is important.

The various sports is the main focus of Ekstremsportveko, however the music program has become an important part for the total experience of the festival. The last three days of the festival national and international exciting artists are spicing up the festival with their vibrant music within the genres; pop, rock, funk and reggae!
Ekstremsportveko is not an adventure company who offers various activities or accommodation. If you would like to experience the beauty of Voss or try out some thrilling activities, you have to book these directly yourself.
