Outdoor Activities

Telemark is the ideal place for combining nature with fun activities, either you put on hiking boots, step on the bicycle or enter the kayak for excursions on the coast, along the Telemark Canal or in the mountain lakes.

Telemark is perfect for bicycling along the coast, along the Telemark Canal and at the Hardanger mountain plateau. National route no. 1 goes along the coast and no 2 goes along the Telemark Canal from Dalen to Ulefoss.

Hiking to Igletjønnuten in Fyresdal with great view towards Fyresvatn lake. Telemark has a varied hiking offer for all levels. Bring hiking boots, a ruck sack and you will be content. What a great feeling you will experience once back at the hotel to enjoy food and beverages after a whole day in the outdoors.

The Telemark canal is perfect for canoeing, enjoy the narrow canals, the open waters and going through the locks. The canal boats transport canoes and kayaks.
