Summer in Telemark is all about lakes and mountains, boat trips, warm pools, nature experiences and mountain hiking.
The restored boat M/S Fram, is living cultural heritage that bears witness to the area's logging history. The boat was built to transport timber as long ago as 1909, and these days she sails on the Nisser and Vråvatn lakes from the hotel quay in Vrådal. She sails from June to October and offers tranquil trips in the beautiful inland archipelago. Don't miss out on the scrumptious waffles served in the on-board café. You can also try out a canoe, a rowing boat or a pedal boat on lake Nisser, all of which are available to rent at the hotel.
Vrådal Golf Course
Vrådal Golf Course opened in 2013, and is beautifully located at Fossøy, surrounded by forests and mountains. The course has nine holes and is open to non-members every day. Give us a call, we'll tell you more about our golf packages in partnership with the golf course.
Telemark sightseeing tours
Vrådal is a fantastic destination in itself, and with its location in central Telemark, is a great base from which to explore the rest of the area, full of cultural history. We have great ideas for day-trips you can enjoy: Round west Telemark, panoramic tour to Rjukan, Telemark canal by boat, expedition to Fyresdal or coastal experiences in Kragerø.
Cycling in Vrådal is great. The surfaces along the beaches of lakes Nisser and Vråvatnet are flat, and if you go a little further afield the landscape becomes more hilly. There are three tours we recommend: One of 10 km, one of 45 km and a longer tour of 80 km which also includes a boat trip. Bicycles can be rented from reception and we will, of course, help with maps of the area.
