“Pricey but fine old world style”
Review of Dalen i Telemark

Dalen i Telemark
Attraction details
Reviewed 28 September 2017

The b&b was an overpriced place where I didn't get breakfast ' They 'forgot' to get up and provide one. So next night ( after the Telemark canal boat trip ) I stayed at the only other option in Dalen, The Dalen Hotel. Grand and full of character.

I'm usually driving through Dalen at least two times each year.
It's always fascinating to drive down and up the hills, they are very steep so remember to use the gear to break when you're driving....

In Dalen you can take the ferry through the Telemark Canal. The Dalen Hotel is also a famous attraction because it's supposed to be haunted (!!). Otherwise Dalen is surrounded by huge steep mountains and beautiful norwegian nature. From Dalen you can also get to other exciting places as Rjukan, Hardangervidda and Setesdal - and further away the western parts of Norway.. Just before Dalen (arriving from Oslo) you'll also find The West Telemark Museum, Eidsborg Stave Church and some historical war landmarks.

A part from this it's not much to do here for tourists, the city centre is small - there are just a couple of gas stations to buy fast food and a couple of restaurants/cafes.

For me it's also always been an attraction to witness the youth called "rånere" in Dalen driving their "pimped" cars back and forth several times, while we've eaten our dinner here. It's been less and less of them the last years though. It has to be said fuel prices in Norway is not the cheapest in the world...

Thank FyFazan
