Canal boat from Lunde

For further information about Canal boats and the Telemark Canal, click The boats Victoria and Henrik Ibsen have daily departures up or down the Telemark Canal from mid May to September/October. They leave 200 metres upstream from Lunde lock just outside Telemark Kanalcamping. A third boat, Telemarken, makes Akkerhaugen – Lunde round trips from mid June to early August.


Embarking and debarking takes place at all locks. Details about landing places, schedules and tour suggestions are available at



Transport by Canal Boat
The canal boats take canoes, kayaks and bicycles to and from all regular landings along the canal. While you do not have to be aboard the boat yourself, take the opportunity if you can. If you rent equipment from us but will not be aboard the boat, we can provide equipment delivery / pick-up from the canal boat at Lunde lock for NOK 50 (2022) per unit.


Tickets for passengers, canoes or kayaks must be ordered separately from Telemark Canal for the relevant canal section. Remember that the boat only runs once a day, so check the timetable to see when to receive equipment we have delivered on board, or when to return equipment to us.
