After one week, the course has 14,700 learners! This is about as many people as the population of Voss municipality in Hordaland county in Western Norway. Voss is also a station on the Bergen line, and lies about 80 minutes away from Bergen by train. Their coat of arms shows a deer.

The town is host to an annual extreme sports gathering called Ekstremsportveko, which attracts athletes in BASE jumping, rafting, mountain biking and more.

There is a cable car running from the town centre up to a nearby mountain with this spectacular view.

As many other places in Western Norway, Voss experiences harsh weather sometimes. Sometimes a kayak can be a more reliable form of transport than a car.
