Return trip: Akkerhaugen – Ulefoss – Akkerhaugen
26 June 2023 - 13 August 2023
Join us on a canal cruise in the heart of the Telemark canal!
The canal boat M/S Telemarken sails over beautiful lake Norsjø and up the locks in Ulefoss on this daytrip.
You take the boat both ways and, in the meantime, you experience Ulefoss which is an old industrial community. You can shop, visit one of the museums, eat and watch the life on the canal.
A 2-course meal at the restaurant on “Øvre Verket” is included in the package. “Øvre Verket” is a collection of charming wooden houses which were inhabited by industrial workers and their families in the 1800`s. Make sure you have some time to spend here amongst the galleries and small shops.
