Canvas Hotel Hove
Canvas Hotel Telemark


A brand new Canvas Hotel has opened in Arendal. Welcome!

The Canvas Hotels are not like other hotels. Our goal is that you get the feeling of nature, adrenaline, the silence, warmth and cold and a sense of enjoyment. Thousands of guests have already experienced Canvas Hotel in Telemark since it opened in 2010. Now we will open the brand new Canvas Hove on Tromøya in Arendal. We are hoping to offer you exiting, new experiences.

The names of the new hotels will be Canvas Hove and Canvas Telemark.

The activities are at the center of attention at the new Canvas Hove. SUP, windsurfing, kayaking, underwater safari with underwater scooter, mountain biking and yoga are just some of the activities. We have accommodation for everyone, ranging from your own tent to luxury yurts with ready-made bed and bath in the room, and round Cocoon tents hanging from the threes!



If you do not know the place, this is one of Arendals most beautiful spots with sun all day and lovely views to the sea and the beach. More than a hundred thousand people go hiking in the area every year. Now both hikers and guests at Canvas Hove have a good reason to stop at the restaurant. You can enjoy coffee, lunch or dinner. Or treat yourself with cold drink.

Now the new head chef is also hired. Frode Laupsa has returned to Sørlandet after 22 years in Oslo where he opened the Michelin star restaurant Restaurant “Oscarsgate”. He has worked as a food consultant at the Culinary Academy, at the food-mecca “Palace Grill” and he is a former member of Norway’s national cookery team.

We promise you a quality meal with much short-traveled ingredients, good prices and quality-conscious chefs.
