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. Many people go hiking in this popular national park every year. Now both hikers and guests at Canvas Hove have a good reason to stop at the restaurant.

The opening hours are Saturday and Sunday 1pm-6pm

During weekdays and evenings we are opening for groups and events. Please contact us on +47 37030400 og email us at

We are so proud to have Miriam Rasmussen running the activities centre at Canvas Hove.

We have opened Norway’s first surfing center ever! On a stunningly beautiful Canvas Hove in Arendal, Miriam Rasmussen will run her clinics from early May to late October each year. In collaboration with Arendal’s Sailing Association and Canvas Hove, she has 30 surfboards, 40 complete rigs, 30 SUP boards, 2 Hobiecat trimarans and catamarans and 8 glass bottom canoes that you can rent!

The head of the activity center is Miriam Rasmussen, one of Norway’s best windsurfers. This is what she says about the new adventure on Canvas Hove. – I couldn’t be happier and more optimistic. All I want is to live for windsurfing and from windsurfing, and I´m starting to think that this is actually going on #highthererightnow.

So if you are planning your summer vacation this year or in 2020 and want to make something fun and spectacular for the whole family out of it – look no further – Canvas Hove is definitely the place!

Contact Miriam via PM to make an appointment! @miriamrasmussen
