Tourism Pro Offers Inspiration & Adventure in Telemark

Visit Telemark has opted for the popular Tourism Pro solution from New Mind | tellUs for the development of its brand new site, www.visittelemark.com

The Norwegian county of Telemark is as diverse as it is beautiful, from pretty coastal towns stretching inland to all the way to the huge, largely treeless mountain plateau of Hardangervidda, Norway’s largest national park. The well known Telemark Canal is a major attraction, connecting the county's largest town, Skien to the tiny town of Dalen, 105 kilometres away.  At 1,883 metres above sea level, Gaustatoppen is the county’s highest point, where it is said that you can see one sixth of the entire Norwegian mainland.

The destination was looking for a solution which would take the existing Visit Telemark website to the next level by adding increased functionality, an improved design and an enhanced visitor experience.  Tourism Pro was selected as the ideal solution to deliver Visit Telemark's objectives.  

Visit Telmark has opted to add TripAdvisor, YouTube and Vimeo integration plus the Event Submission Form.  Enhancements to the Featured Items functionality allow the team to incorporate videos in top banners and display featured products in a range of sizes, depending on selections made in the new Featured Items Control.   

The Visit Telemark team has been busy on the site's content.  Using the Featured Items functionality they have created five new sections offering ideas and inspiration on how to explore Telemark, whether for culture, a family holiday, an outdoor adventure or a holiday with friends and loved ones.  There's even a bucket list of things to do for visitors who are spoilt for choice. 

Dedicated pages featuring hiking and cycling routes provide visitors with a host of choices, both easy and strenuous. Foodies can find out more about the county's rich and varied local produce too, from freshly caught seafood from the coast to exquisite cheeses.

Håkon Nordby, Marketing Manager at Visit Telemark comments: "We are delighted with the site's design and functionality so far.  We believe that the video viewing functionality, Featured Items sections and the map on the home page have improved our site significantly.  We have been able to use more of our great range of videos and photos and more will follow. Check out our Norwegian site which will be updated first."
