Charming walk along the Telemark Canal, past the historic Dalen Hotel, beautiful Soria Moria Sauna and through the "jungle" in the delta of the valley.
AN EASY HIKE with culture, history and great fishing spots.
The walk starts at Dalen Bryggje, also known as Lastein. This is where the renowned Eidsborg whetstone, Norway’soldest export, was shipped from. You will then pass a lovely beach before crossing the Eidsborgbekken stream. The trail then takes you past Tangane, a popular recreation ground with an idyllic pine forest. You can get a good view of Dalen Hotel from the gardens. Soria Moria Sauna glitters like a piece of jewelry in Lake Bandak.
Cross River Tokkeåi using the stepping stones.
At Buøy, follow the nature trail through the fascinating “jungle”, occasionally converging with the river with its great fishing spots and extensive beaver population. You can buy a fishing license for the Tokkeåi river and Lake Bandak at the tourist office.
The tour then takes you back through the centre of Dalen and its intimate shopping street, flower market, shops, cafés and the Tokke town hall with its sculptures by Anne Grimdalen and Charles Michalsen and assembly room clad in whetstone.
