About Lunde Slusepark

Lunde locks is one of eight lock constructions on the Telemark Canal. It‘s located in the heart of the Telemark region, and is surrounded by a beautiful park – Lunde Slusepark. The locks and the park, consisting of green walking/playing areas, restaurant and an outside amphitheater, are considered to be the main hub of the canal. This is where the three canal boats – M/S Henrik Ibsen, M/S Victoria and M/S Telemarken – meet daily during the boat season. The canal buses drive people to and from the park, and correspond with the departure and arrival time of the boats.

The 3 canal boats: Victoria, Henrik Ibsen og Telemarken.

The park is facilitated with tables/chairs and specific BBQ areas. Take a stroll through the park and enjoy the art work on display, while the kids play around at the swing- and play sets.

The park is a place for both recreation, picnics and events. It is a perfect starting point for canoe/kayak paddling on the Telemark Canal, and you can also park your own boat at the guest marina. It is open for everybody and can be used free of charge, but if you want to arrange an event for larger groups, please contact Erling Rønnekleiv, or tel. + 47 991 66 419.
