Gaustatoppen – view of a sixth of Norway

At 1,883 meters above sea level, Gaustatoppen is the highest point in all of Telemark. From the beautiful mountaintop you can see a sixth of Norway on a clear day - from the border with Sweden in the east to the coast at Skagerrak in the south. Even from a distance, Gaustatoppen is an impressive sight, where the snow-capped mountain is majestically reflected in the clear water of the mountain lakes.

Rjukan - the city at the smoking waterfall

Rjukan is a small town with a big history, which has led to a nomination to the UNESCO World Heritage List. In 1810, geology professor Jens Esmark reported to the king in Copenhagen that the highest waterfall in the world had been found at Rjukan. However, Esmark had made incorrect measurements and Rjukanfossen's 104 meters was actually not enough for the title of the highest waterfall in the world. Nevertheless, the Norwegian waterfall has attracted travelers from all over the world to Rjukan near Gausta to experience Rjukanfossen - the smoking waterfall.

Norwegian Industrial Workers Museum and bungee jumping in Vemork

In 1943, one of the most significant acts of sabotage of the Second World War occurred at the Vemork hydroelectric power station. Today Vemork has been transformed into the Norwegian Industrial Workers Museum, where you can see, among other things, how Norwegian saboteurs prevented the Germans from producing nuclear weapons. If you want to give the historical experience a top-class adrenaline rush, Vemork is also an obvious destination. Here you will find Norway's highest bungee jump. Take a 84-meter bungee jump from a suspension bridge toward a deep gorge and feel like you're disappearing into a funnel of rock walls.

Krossobanen - historic cable car to Hardangervidda

The Krossobanen is Northern Europe's first cable car and was originally built to take the citizens of the city of Rjukan to the sunlight at the mountain top. Let the historic red gondolas on Krossobanen take you to Norway's largest national park, Hardangervidda. From here there is free access to a wide network of hiking trails. Look out for elusive arctic foxes, rare birds and Norway's largest population of reindeer. A holiday in Gausta immerses you in the history and nature of Norway in more ways than one. Explore the area - an experience for all the senses is guaranteed in Rjukan/Gausta.
