With its temparate climate, its shifting and spectacular nature, its rich heritage and a wide spectre of exciting activities, Telemark has for more than a hundred years been an adventure centre for everyone.

The famous playwright Henrik Ibsen was born in Skien, and his childhood home has become a nice museum, showing the early life of the writer.

Did you know that the cabin where Sondre Norheim lived, is still found in the valley close to the Norwegian Ski Museum at Morgedal? You can hike from the museum up to the cabin and experience the view of the hills where Sondre founded modern skiing.

Each summer there are food festivals held around the county and many local farmers also sell their products at the popular “Farmers Day” arrangements. The largest food festival is Mersmak in Skien.

Welcome to an inspirational holiday in Telemark.
