We took a half-day boat trip to explore The Telemark Canal waterway system. It was carved into the rock over 100 years ago. When the canal was completed in 1892, it was called the “eighth wonder”. The canal connects the coast of Telemark with the interior through eight locks at a distance of 105 km from Skien to Dalen. It lifts boats 72 meters above sea level to the lake of Flåvatn.
