  • Kanal Telemark je čudo graditeljstva. Pomoću prevodnica (ustava), omogućava da se brodovi maltene penju uz brdo. Dužina kanala je oko 104 km. Visinska razlika je 72 m. Kanal je jedinstven i veličanstven. Jezera su divna, okružena divnim zelenilom šuma, livada i prekrasnim naseljima sa drvenim kućama. Jednom rečju, putovanje brodom ovim kanalom predstavlja proživljenu bajku.
  • From here you can take the boat "Viktoria" all the way up to the Valley.
