Norway's rawest bungee jump
From the suspension bridge at Vemork you throw yourself into an 84 meter deep gorge. This is a very raw experience and is often a must for many in the group of friends.
Krossobanen and Rjukan Climbing Park

In 2018, a new climbing park opened at Krossobanen's upper station. The experience starts with a 5 minute hike with the cable car, Krossobanen, then the opportunity opens up for several hikes on the top, but then from three to three. Here you can check out the "Sabotør Trail" or test out zip-lines and a raft of other activities. Either way, you will have experiences you will never forget.
Dinner or lunch at Café Krossobanen
At Gvepseborg you will also find the café "Kafé Krossobanen" with a fantastic panoramic view of Rjukan and the Gaustatoppen. This is a great place to put in either lunch or dinner.
Trip to Gaustatoppen

Gaustatoppen majestically rests on Rjukan and is on the "to do list" to many. The tour takes about 2 hours one way. At the top awaits great views. On a clear day you can actually see 1/6 of Norway!
Vemork and the Saboteur's Trail
You may have heard of "The Battle of the Heavy Water"? At Rjukan you can experience the story where it actually happened! Walk the exciting "Saboteur Trail" with guide and know for yourself on the body what the sabotage went through the night they were going to blow up the heavy water factory at Vemork. The climax of the trip is the crossing of the canyon itself. This must be experienced.
After the tour, you can complement the story with a visit to the Vemork museum.
Gaustatoppen Booking has cabins and apartments for 5 - 20 people, so here you can either get units close to each other or gather the whole gang in a cabin.
