RunWay has the pleasure of inviting you on a trip during the Whitsun weekend. The trip goes to Telemark and Straand
Hotel, further we will travel with canal boats on the Telemark Canal and a whole day in Blaafarveværket.
On Friday morning, we pick up our guests at the agreed terminals, and set the course for this
beautiful May day, to Hardanger. We cross the fjord with the ferry and drive along Sørfjorden to Odda, there
we get to see Hardanger from its most beautiful side during the flowering season. From Odda we drive towards Røldal and Haukeli,
before we arrive in the afternoon at Vrådal and beautiful Straand Hotel. Here we will stay for three nights and celebrate
Pentecost along with nice excursions. Shared dinner in the evening.
Saturday is Pentecost itself and we will use this for a trip on the Telemark Canal with them
the legendary canal boat. Here we will pass spectacular locks, and sail along calm waters in an otherwise
so mighty landscape. This is an experience that one will remember for a long time. In the evening it becomes common
dinner at the hotel.
