Skien Vacation Packages

Skien is one of the oldest towns in Norway, dating from 1100 and was established as a municipality in 1838. Today, it is part of the seventh largest Norwegian city, together with Porsgrunn and Bamble. It suffered big and repeated natural disasters, like fire and floods; after the last fire in 1886, Skien was completely rebuilt. Nowadays, visitors are coming here mainly to begin a journey along the Telemark Canal. As a matter of fact, Skien is an old viking town, very well known through the Middle ages as a supplier of wood, now a modern technology area. The people of Skien are known for their ability to cope with big restructuration – from heavy industry in the past - to smaller, innovative businesses in our time.
