There are many who have discovered that the Telemark Canal and its landscape are suited for many forms of activities, among them sports events. We have highlighted a few of these events that are closely related to the Telemark Canal.

The Telemark Paddler is a yearly paddle event that happens on the idyllic eastern side of the canal between Notodden and Akkerhaugen. There are several distances to choose from – the shortest being 10 km from Lystang to Akkerhaugen, the most popular 23 km track from Notodden to Akkerhaugen and the most challenging one traveling from Akkerhaugen to Notodden and back! This event will occur in late September.

The Telemark Canal Cycling Event is a cycling event that goes along the Bandak Canal (western side of the Telemark Canal). The longest distance is if you start from Dalen (100 km) but there are other alternative starting locations. Large parts of the event are on the nartional cycling route number 2, which we recommend all cyclists to experience. The event will occur late May.

The Telemark Canal Race is a rollerskis race in Lunde that is a part of the «Week of Telemark» and will be broadcasted on national television. The track along the Telemark Canal from Lunde to Strengen varies a lot and is well suited for rollerskis. Many of Norway's best athletes will compete, but it also possible for everyone else to attend!

There is a yearly fishing event for those who like fishing: The Canal Pike. In the 2nd half of May this event encourages people to fish as many kilograms of pike as you can manage over the course of 2 days! People will the largest fish will be awarded.

The Lunde Thriathlon is held in the end of August. It is an event suitable for everyone! There are different categories for children, junior and adults.
