Your Holiday In Telemark

Are you looking for an adventure that will leave you feeling rejuvenated and inspired? Look no further than Telemark, Norway. With its breathtaking natural scenery, charming towns, and countless opportunities for outdoor activities, Telemark is the perfect destination for your next holiday.

And what better way to explore this stunning region than by taking to the water in an electric cabincruiser from Canal Boats Telemark? With one of our eco-friendly boats, you can cruise through the picturesque Telemark Canal at your own pace, stopping to explore quaint villages and hidden coves along the way. Or you can travel to the sea and explore the beautiful Norwegian fjords. If you are born before 1980 you don’t need a boat license, only 2 season experience driving a boat.

As you meander through the peaceful waters, you’ll be surrounded by lush forests, soaring mountains, and crystal-clear lakes. You might even spot some of the local wildlife, such as moose, beavers, and eagles. Take in the stunning views and let the tranquility wash over you as you disconnect from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

At the end of the Telemark canal lies Dalen, a small town surrounded by high mountains. Here you can visit Dalen Hotel, an old wooden fairytale hotel where you can enjoy a lunch in their stunning back garden or eat a delicious dinner.

But the fun doesn’t stop there. Telemark offers a wealth of activities to keep you entertained, from hiking and biking to visiting local cider and winery. In the summer, you can take a dip in the refreshing waters or try your hand at fishing for trout and salmon. From our base in Porsgrunn you can also travel to the sea. Only four hours away from Porsgrunn lies Kragerø. Take a stroll through this charming village for some shopping or enjoy one of many restaurants in this popular summer town. While you’re here, make sure to take a stop by Kragerø resort where you can relax at the beach club, go golfing or visit the spa.

And when you’re ready to wind down for the day, your electric cabincruiser will be waiting for you, offering all the comforts of home. Cook a meal in the well-equipped kitchen, relax in the cozy living area, and enjoy a good night’s sleep in the comfortable beds.

Porsgrunn is centrally located in the southeast of Norway, only 2 hours away by direct train from Oslo airport.
