During your trip
Parking your car
There are free car parks for boat passengers at all ports of call along the Telemark Canal. At Hjellebrygga, Skien, you need a special parking ticket in your windshield. See signs at the car park for information.
Car parks are not secured or guarded, and you park your car at your own responsibility. Please pay attention to signs and information on-site. There may be other car parks, not facilitated by the Telemark Canal, with other restrictions. We advise everyone to respect private property.
The Telemark Canal is stretching out over 105 km, and we recommend that you use a specific destination for your GPS navigator. Using “Telemarkskanalen” will possibly not take you where you want to go. Please find an overview of addresses and useful information about the different destinations here (link to ports of call)
