About

Welcome to Dalen Hotel Telemark! 

Dalen Hotel is known as “the hotel from the fairytales”. It was opened in 1894 in a grand romantic style with dragon heads, towers and spiers, balconys and cornices.

Combining a visit to Dalen Hotel with sailing the Telemark Canal on board of MS Henrik Ibsen or MS Victoria is a unique historical journey back in time with modern comfort and service.

The hotel is open during the summer season from medio April to medio October. The ships traffic the Telemark Canal from late May to October. 

We are pleased to welcome you to one of Norway’s oldest wooden hotels, only 400 m from Dalen Pier, the end station of the Telemark Canal with easy access to the hotel.
