The Extreme Sport week in Voss
Ekstremsportveko is the biggest sport and music festival of its kind, and is hosted every year in Voss, Western Norway.
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.
Ekstremsportveko is owned by the non-profit organization “The Ekstreme Voss Foundation.” Voss Rafting Club, Voss Kayak Club, Voss Hang and Paraglider Club and Skydive Voss are the four local clubs which represent Ekstreme Voss. Every year 300-400 volunteers contribute to make the festival a huge success. In 2008 we even had volunteers from various countries in Europe and America.
