1. You'll find some of the best hiking possibilities along the Telemark Canal in and around Dalen.

Day 1 - Go the incredible beautiful Lårdalsstigen that is high up in the mountains with a perfect view Bandak. It is a demanding yet rewarding trip. We recommend taking the boat back upon arrival in Lårdal which will take you back to Dalen. If you are in need of accomodation we recommend staying the night in Dalen Hotel, our very own fairytale hotel.

Day 2 – The Rui trail, that passes the famous habitat of the Rui sisters is a hike that takes you up in the mountains and leads to the West-Telemark museum in Eidsborg that is accompanied by the Eidsborg stave church. At the museum you will find exciting exhibitions, stories of old and a miniature model of the Telemark Canal where children are able to be captain of a miniature boat for a day!

2. There are various hiking opportunities in Lunde: if you like hiking high up in the mountains, we'd recommend Knarren or Luberg - slightly challenging hikes that present you with a stunning view over the landscape. You could also combine hiking with a trip on the canal. Accomodation we'd recommend in Lunde would be Telemark Canal camping or Lunde Vandrehjem.

3. If you are situated near Skien, we recommend taking the trip to Løveid and Skotfoss. A beautiful trail rich of culture in the old industrial area where the old paper factory used to exist. For accomodation we recommend the house of the lockmaster near Løveid - that has been transformed into a Bed & Breakfast. We also recommend an urban hike in the city of Skien, with trips around Hjellevann and Bryggevann, or hike in Henrik Ibsens footsteps by visiting Brekkeparken.

4. In the fruitvillage of Sauherad there is an abundance of possibilities. We would recommend hikes in the area, especially in the middle of May. In the summer the village is packed with exhibitions, galleries and sale of fruit near the farms which would grant exciting and new hikes year after year! For accomodation we would like to point out Lerkekåsa Vineyard, Norsjø Ferieland and Norsjø Hotel in Akkerhaugen.

5. In Notodden we recommend exploring the town and its world heritage by foot. Sam Eyde and Kristian Birkeland were the first to utilize fertilizer by use of hydropower to extract nitrogen from the air, and estabilished Norsk Hydro in Notodden. Experience Hydro industrial park, Øvre Tinfos cultural area, Lysbuen World Heritage museum, Admini and Grønnebyen. We recommend accomodation at Brattrein Hotel.
