Trip Photos

Wow! Experience Voss are excellent. We went on the Weekend Getaway, flying in on a Thursday and leaving on the Sunday evening. Derek organised everything perfectly. The hiking was amazing, what a beautiful country we saw. The views....fabulous! Finished the trip with a little Kayaking down the river. An added bonus were the professional photographs of our trip, no need to capture the moment as Derek did it for us. Thank you to Derek and team, it was the perfect getaway! Bridget and Wils
