Telemark offers a wide range of activities for the whole family. With its ideal mix of attractions, stunning nature, history, culture and entertainment, Telemark is the place to enjoy a weekend or holiday.

Telemark is perfect for bicycling along the coast, along the Telemark Canal and at the Hardanger mountain platau. It is ideal for combining nature with fun activities, either you put on hiking boots or enter the kayak for excursions.

Ferries take you out to the islands outside Brevik and Kragerø. The island of Jomfruland is especially fascinating with its boulder stone beach on one side, and sandy beaches on the other side.

Telemark offers good fishing, choose from deep sea fishing, fishing in lakes or in the mountains.

If you wish to go back in time; explore the history of Telemark through the museums.

During winter Telemark offers 8 ski destinations – Telemark Super Ski is Norway’s largest ski region.
