A tailored experience just for you

Canvas Telemark is like no other hotel. We are an oasis in the middle of nowhere, 2 km from nearest road and 7 km from nearest village. It is a place to enjoy the pleasures of the wilderness of Telemark. By foot, with a fishing rod or SUP. But we prefer that you go with our experienced guides on our network of flowy mountain bike trails. We have around 120 km of mountain bike trails around the area and our guides are very experienced with alle different skill levels. If you have never tried mountain biking before we will teach you all there is to know. At the hotel you can rent an electric mountain bike.

We will meet you at the parking 2 km from the hotel and transport your luggage. You will enjoy a beautiful hike for 30 min to get to the hotel. At there will be a guided tour to stretch the legs and get to know the terrain a bit. Or you can just enjoy the lake view in front of a bonfire, sauna, or hot tub with a glass of something nice. Either you have brought your own bike, or you can rent from us. Dinner is served 20:30.

Our meals are served in the restaurant or lounge, or outside by the bonfire. Our chef prepares a delicious 3-course dinner on a wood fired stove.
