This is the package fit for those who seek the ultimate canal experience; sail the entire Telemark Canal from Skien to Dalen and spend two nights at the fairytale hotel Dalen Hotel.


Get ready for a journey to the past and enjoy the same voyage up the Telemark Canal as royalties and nobles did over 100 years ago.
Start your day with breakfast on board while you travel on the narrow rivers, wide lakes, and through massive locks.
Lower your shoulders and your pulse, enjoy good food and beverage, and observe the ever-changing landscape.

The atmosphere at Dalen Hotel is filled with history and luxury. The restaurant has world class food and service, and the storytelling in front of the fireplace wraps you in the experience of being the observer of history.

The second day at Dalen Hotel should be spent exploring the many things to see and do in Dalen. Why don’t you book yourself into the world-famous sauna “Soria Moria”, hike the Lårdalsstigen or, perhaps, just enjoy a calm Afternoon Tea in the hotel garden.
