About Vangsvatnet Lake
Vangsvatnet is a large lake in the municipality of Voss. The 7.69-square-kilometre lake lies in the central part of the municipality. The Vosso River flows into and out of the Vangsvatnet.
The European route E16 and the Bergensbanen railway line both run along the northern shore of the lake. In the south shore you can enjoy the beautiful views of Gråsida, a mountain plateau between Voss and Hardanger Fjord.
The lake is used for various water-based sports activities like: water ski, kite surfing, stand-up-paddle, windsurfing, and more extreme ones as tow-in paragliding.
Vangsvatnet is named after the place Vangen — the municipal center and old church site of Voss. The last element is the finite form of ‘vatn’, meaning lake.
