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 lock.
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.

Let yourself slip into the bubble of historic luxury at Dalen Hotel. Here you will be served world class food and service.
After dinner you can enjoy the soft classical tunes from a live pianist in front of the fireplace, while you wait for the storytelling.

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.
