Fjordcruise på Telemarkskanalen

Fjords of Telemark

Experience where the mighty Hardangervidda meets the Telemark Canal – giving birth the majestic fjord of Telemark! This is where rugged mountains dramatically cascade into the serene depths of the lakes, offering you a front-row seat to a mesmerizing panoramic spectacle. As the morning sun graces the landscape, you will embark on a scenic voyage across Lake Bandak. To enhance your journey, we highly recommend pre-booking a delectable breakfast platter served on board. Your journey will lead you to Hogga locks, where you will disembark and savor a delightful lunch at the historic lock master's residence. At this charming establishment known as "Heksas Kjøkken," a family-driven restaurant, you'll be treated to homemade, locally sourced cuisine that truly embodies the essence of the region. Following this delightful meal, you will rejoin the cruise that will take you back to Dalen, immersing you once more in a world reminiscent of fairytales. Keep a keen eye out, for you might just catch a glimpse of the legendary "king's ship" or even a slumbering troll lurking in the enchanting surroundings.
