Autumn luxury á la Dalen
Do you long to return to the wonderful holiday feeling during the autumn? If you want to enjoy the good life, replenish your time and energy, we recommend taking a break from everyday life and coming to us to experience the wonderful moments of late summer and autumn.
Your adventure begins when you board the veteran ship M / S Henrik Ibsen in Skien, which takes you on the journey along the Telemark Canal to Dalen.
With clear blue skies, late summer light, nature's beautiful colors in the pasture and wonderfully crisp air interspersed with nice, pounding rain - you can not help but love autumn at our Adventure Hotel!
In addition to delicious meals, magical evenings with piano music and storytelling, long good á la carte breakfasts, bathing experiences await at Soria Moria Sauna, 810 steps up to rafting views at Rui Square and much more for those who want it. And to rest in between in an armchair, with something good in the glass, in front of the warming fire is autumn coziness about something.
The sailing, on the world's most beautiful waterway, back to Skien will be a nice final on your luxurious autumn adventure.
