Tone Haukåssveen

Tone has worked in the travel industry for 27 years. In this industry she has worked within most of the sectors pertaining to travel – such as booking, organization of trips to all corners of the world, travel management for agents at different destinations – and the last 12 years as a part owner of Telemark Opplevelser.

In 1996 Tone started a company as a self-employed travelling consultant for assignments in different travel agencies/tour operators in Oslo.


She went in a different direction in 2000 – when she started attending Norges Høgfjellsskole in Hemsedal. At the same time she attended a local nature –and culture guide course at NIH.

In 2001 she moved and settled in Rjukan, where she has been running, along with her husband Jon, the company Telemark Opplevelser fulltime since 2002. Here the main emphasis is on historic trips and mountain guiding as well as bungee jumping/zip-lining from Vemorkbrua.

In the fall of 2013 yet another adventure started. The journey took her to Spain/Costa Blanca/Jàvea!!

Jon and Tone will mostly be working in Spain during the winter season. During the summer season they will keep on running Telemark Opplevelser.

Leisure interests:

  • Hiking, preferably in the mountains with a tent – and happily on steep mountains.
  • The desire to travel is always present – around the world. Always ready for a new adventure!
  • Find fun things to do and little adventures with the new addition to the family, their little son Oliver.
