A taste of the Telemark canal! Join in on a cruise up the Telemark Canal from Ulefoss and experience beautiful nature, history, and local food in one day.


Experience the Telemark canal and industrial history in one day! From Ulefoss lock you get on the canal bus which takes you to Lunde lock; the heart of the Telemark canal. In Lunde you embark on one of the historic canal ships. This trip takes you through the Vrangfoss lock system, the largest lock facility in the Telemark Canal. While in the locks you get to see the lock guards in action opening and closing the massive lock doors, an attraction you will find only here. The journey down the historic waterway will give you panoramic views of beautiful scenery.

You disembark the boat in Ulefoss and it is only a 5-minute walk to Øvre Verket. If you have parked your car by Ulefoss locks earlier in the day, you do not have to move it.

Øvre Verket is a collection of listed workers' housing that offers gift shops, exhibitions, local crafts etc. A local guide will take you for a guided walk of the workers' housing at Øvre Verket. At Spiseriet, a modern restaurant in the middle of the courtyard, you will be served a 2-course menu, incl. a drink.

The car can be parked for free in the parking lot approx. 200 meters before Ulefoss locks (when you come from Ulefoss center).
