Telemarkskanalen

About

(Norsjø-Bandak Canal)
The Telemark Canal was completed in 1892 and has 18 locks, lifting the travlers from 0 to 72 meters above sea level on the 105 km long stretch between Skien and Dalen.
"MS Victoria" and "MS Henrik Ibsen" sail between Dalen and Skien from May to September.
The Telemark Canal was carved into the rock over 100 years ago. When the canal was completed in 1892, it was called the "eighth wonder".

The canal connects the coast of Telemark with the interior through eight locks at a distance of 105 km from Skien to Dalen. It consists of two waterways; Skien- Dalen and Skien-Notodden. Therefore, it is now possible to experience the Telemark Canal by ferry, charter boats, your own boat, canoes and kayaks.

In addition, you can also experience the canal by car, bicycle or on foot.
