About Voss - The Red Cross Cabin

You can choose whether you want to start walking from the town centre or drive to Voss Folk Museum and start from there. The first part from the museum takes you up a relatively steep foothpath to the Hanguren restaurant, 660 masl.

Continue on an easy walked path to the top of mount Hanguren, 820 masl. There is a lovely view of the Vangsvatnet lake and surrounding peaks.

Then follow the path and signs towards the Red Cross cabin (Rødekors-hytta).

The cabin is beautifully situated by the lake Valbergstjørni, and on nice summer days, you can go for a swim.

Further, one can either go the same route back to the Hanguren restaurant, or one can do a round trip on the west side of Valbjergtjørni and follow signs to Hanguren.
