Dizzying extreme week in the charming corner of Norway: a quiz

June 23 mega-popular annual sports and music festival Ekstremsportveko/Extreme Sports Week will start in Voss Municipality (Western Norway). Its program includes jumping in the air on a mountain dirt bike (competing participants accelerated by an earth springboard), flights of paragliders, skydivers and base jumpers. Also there will be extreme swimming on the boiling river rapids, kayaking, etc.

For many, Voss is the starting point for tours to Sognefjord and Hardangerfjord. There is a kingdom of skiers in winter, and lots of extreme fans in summer.
