22nd July 2015
Categories: Our News
The pace continues at New Mind | tellUs with the completion of a series of new sites for the County of Telemark during the Summer, based on the design and functionality of www.visittelemark.com.
A new channel site for Visit Dalen, www.visittelemark.com/dalen conveys the destination's own unique identity. Dalen is a small town in West Telemark, mainly popular for outdoor activities such as hiking, fishing and canoeing. Opened in 1894, the Dalen Hotel is known as the 'hotel from the fairytales' because of its grand romantic style with dragon heads, towers and spires, balconies and cornices.The main attraction in the area is the Telemark Canal, built in 1892 and covering 105km from Dalen in the West to Skien in the South and passing through eighteen locks along the way. A dedicated channel site for the Canal has also been created by the New Mind | tellUs team.
A new hiking channel site, www.visittelemark.com/vandretelemark invites visitors to explore the area's vast network of walking trails for all levels, from short easy walks around town centres to more strenuous expeditions to the largest mountain plateau in Northern Europe, Hardangervidda. A range of accommodation options is also featured from camping and cabins to B&B and hotels as well as general tips to ensure that visitors stay safe during their trip.
The latest in the series is a site promoting the scenic Telemarksvegen, Highway 41 from Kristiansand through the County of Telemark, www.visittelemark.com/telemarksvegen. All the information that is required to plan the journey is included with places to stay, attractions to visit (eg. museums, galleries and exhibitions) and suggestions for sampling great traditional food along the route.
The Summer rollout follows the unveiling of www.visitkragero.no earlier in the year when 250 tourism industry professionals and local politicians from across Kragerø attended an official launch event.
Linn Steen of Visit Telemark comments "It’s been a busy summer for us here at Visit Telemark, which is good and we still have two more sites to launch within the next few weeks. We are very pleased with our partners and the collaboration is generating benefits for all."
