The Telemark Canal was completed in 1892. Described as a technological masterpiece and one of the eighth wonders of the world, it attracted a huge influx of travelers from all over the world. Everyone wanted to travel on the fantastic canal with its fascinating Norwegian and unique nature.

Along the way, you will see a varied and unique landscape, with narrow lakes and large waters, animals grazing in the summer, small and old farms, bridges, life on the pier and, not least, the art of the lock as it has always been performed. At Bandak, at the end of the canal, Dalen Hotel reveals itself with its magnificent and majestic architecture.

The Story of Dalen Hotel


Once upon a time...

Among picturesque valleys, at the end of the Telemark Canal overlooking Bandak, Dalen Hotel reveals itself with its majestic architecture. The hotel was introduced to the world and completed in 1894, thanks to the successful completion of the Telemark Canal in 1892. The technologically advanced canal, known as one of the eighth wonders of the world, was the major attraction of the time and attracted a large influx of royalty and distinguished guests from all over the world. The guests needed a luxury hotel, and in 1894 the fashionable and grand hotel was officially opened.

This year marks 130 years since the doors opened for the first time.

Welcome to the iconic, magical and fairytale Dalen Hotel!

"King of the Telemark Canal" is Dalen Hotel's own canal ship and our pride. M/S Henrik Ibsen is a historic canal ship from 1907 and runs a daily shuttle service from Dalen - Skien throughout the canal season. The ship has all rights and serves breakfast, lunch and dinner on its journey through the locks. Several canal packages, day packages and canal trips are offered which can be booked on the ship's website.

The Ducks of Dalen Hotel


Every year, Dalen Hotel adopts Peking ducks from Holte Farm. The ducks live in the duck pen in the hotel's garden, but are released daily where they can roam freely and take a bath in the pond. Unlike ostriches, Peking ducks cannot fly, so they can wander freely around the hotel garden to the delight of guests and staff. The ducks arrive at the hotel when it opens in the spring and move to a local farm in the fall. 

At the start of the season when the ducks are new arrivals, they are a little shy and reserved. But gradually, they become confident, curious and a wonderful addition to our beautiful garden. Feel free to join us when we feed them!

The ducks are a very popular attraction at the hotel.

We remind you that leashes are required on hotel property.
