Overview
Details

Charming walk along the Telemark Canal, past the historic Dalen Hotel, beautiful Soria Moria Sauna and through the "jungle" and river delta at Buøy island.

AN EASY HIKE with culture, history and great fishing spots.

The hike starts by Dalen Bryggje, also known as Lastein pier. This is where the renowned Eidsborg whetstone, Norway’soldest export, was shipped from. Here the historic boats on the Telemark Canal dock. You can learn more about the history of the Telemark Canal at the summer open exhibition at Dalen Bryggjeutstilling. Enjoy a nice meal at the Lastein bryggjekafe.

You will 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 the river Tokkeåi using the stepping stones.

At Buøy island, follow the nature trail through the fascinating “jungle”, along 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 fishspot.no 

Idyllic Buøy Camping is a great place to camp for the night. 

The hike 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. 

The trail is partially universally accessible.
