Daytrip: Ulefoss – Dalen – Ulefoss
Join one of the historical ships on a voyage through the impressive lock constructions and the ever-changing scenery.
First, we pass through the spectacular lock-systems, including Vrangfoss (“the difficult waterfall”) which is the largest lock system in the Telemark canal. After the locks, we sail on the river through a charming agricultural landscape.
Further up the canal there is a change in scenery as we sail on rivers and lakes, moving closer towards the mountains of upper Telemark in a fjord-like landscape.
This daytrip includes boat trip from Ulefoss to Dalen and a bus transfer back from Dalen to Ulefoss on the same evening.
Park the car for free at the parking lot 200 meters before the locks in Ulefoss (when you approach from Ulefoss centre).
- 10:35 departure on board M/S Victoria or M/S Henrik Ibsen from Ulefoss locks
- 17:50/18:30 arrival Dalen
- 18:40 departure on board the canal bus from Dalen pier (Mon-Fri; change buses in Seljord)
- 20.40 arrival Ulefioss locks
