Trysil is a large municipality only a couple of hours north of Oslo. The region has Norway’s largest elk population, so you have a good chance to spot the king of the forest on your trip. Perhaps you will combine your hiking excursions with a guided elk safari? In addition to elks, there is plenty of other wildlife such as roe deer and wood grouse.
