The 105 km Telemark kanal stretches from Skien close to the sea all the way to Dalen near the foot of the Hardangervidda.
Cycling along this old waterway you will experience beautiful scenery while passing idyllic farmland and villages, not to forget the water gates of the kanal that were finished in 1892.
