Rental of canoes and kayaks from Telemark Adventure at Dalen Bed & Breakfast. Quite a lot of people go canoeing on Lake Bandak and the Telemark Canal.
Telemark Adventure at Dalen Bed & Breakfast rents out professional esquif royalex canoes. We have also Janautica Edo kayaks. For canoe trips on the Telemark Canal, we deliver canoes at the harbour in Dalen, the starting point of the canal.
Before you leave, you get some information about the techniques about paddling. Of course you also get life jackets and the paddles that are necessary!
The thing that is so marvellous here in Dalen, is that you can paddle as many days as you want. You start at the harbour in Dalen, and in 4 or 5 days you can reach the East coast of Norway, Skien. To come back, you can take one of the canal boats. They pick you up at any place on the canal. They also bring back the canoes to the starting point here in Dalen. A unique experience!!
Øystein Kohn, the most famous ´canoe man´ from Norway wrote in his book that the Telemark Canal is a real paddle pearl!
In the rental price, there is a map included that indicates where the locks are, as well where you can camp, or buy food along the canal. If necessary, you can rent waterproof barrels or sacs. (30 NOK/day).
