More accessible footpaths for Telemark!

Telemark’s program of upgrading footpaths rolls on! A new 600-metre path has been completed in Drangedal municipality and there are plans to extend further this summer! Users can benefit from the outdoors by following the path of a disused railway line. The program has already seen footpaths improved in 12 of the 18 districts of Telemark, allowing users of various abilities to benefit from using flat, wide, stable footpaths which in many cases connect urban areas to rural areas, allowing locals and tourists to enjoy the great Norwegian outdoors! This multi-stakeholder approach continues at pace and we are very pleased to hear (and see) the progress.
