Experience both historical canal boats of the Telemark Canal and a two-night stay at the fairytale hotel Dalen Hotel.
This is an experience you won’t easily forget. Start your day at the hub of the Telemark Canal, Lunde locks. The journey starts sailing up to Kjeldal and Hogga locks, and from there you will experience the narrow rivers and the wide lakes. Enjoy good food and beverages and let yourself be seduced by the beautiful scenery that glides by and changes from the lush agricultural landscape to the high mountains.
