The Telemark Canal is a 105 kilometer (65 miles) partly artificial waterway from salt waters at Skien to Dalen at an altitude of 72 meters. There are 18 sluice gates at 8 locations, all operated manually like when they were new in 1892. It is used by three tourist boats during the summer, but also by some boating tourists. This is "Victoria" at Vrangfoss.
