The Telemark Canal

Take the bus from Vrådal to Seljord, along Seljordsvatnet, home of the sea monster “Selma”, through the commercial centre Bø and the fruit villages around Gvarv to the old industrial town of Ulefoss. Ulefoss Hovedgård and the Canal Museum by the locks are worth a visit.

Victoria or Henrik Ibsen takes you through 6 locks and up 57 meters, over water og through canals to Kviteseid where the bus is waiting to take you back to Vrådal.

Packages with accomodation and a trip on the canal can be bought at Telemarkskanalen.
