Rjukan offers a unique combination of Norwegian industry and war history, and possibilities for a multitude of activities in nature. If you prefer the great experiences in nature, or want to immerse yourself in culture or history, Rjukan is the place to experience more, all through the year.


Every year we celebrate the sun`s return to Rjukan. The tradition of Solfesten has lasted since 1925. There are pageants and parades in the streets of Rjukan and along the route both locals and visitors gather. The yearly award Solprins/Solprinsesse and Solbarn are named, and Solprisen is awarded to someone who “through their actions and behavior has spread sunshine and joy to the Norwegian people”. Prizes are also awarded for the best costume.

Solfesten 2023 lands on 22. April and with us you live right in the center of the festivities.

Marispelet by the Rjukan waterfalls is the summers most beautiful love story, described as one of Norway’s best plays.
