The sabotage act is known to be one of the most successfully committed during WWII. In Rjukan, you can experience the story where it actually happened. “We have experienced a spike in interest due to the TV series, and a shift from tourists wanting to pass through Rjukan on the way to the fjords, to those who are treating it as a base for further exploration,” says Hege Sætre Næss of Visit Rjukan. “We recommend tourists to stay for two days or more, to be able to experience everything that Rjukan has to offer.”
