With more than 23 million readers each month, The Daily Mail is the largest english-language online newspaper in the world. 1,7 million Brits read the paper edition every day as well.
That’s why it’s a cause for celebration when the news giant visited Trysil (population: roughly 7000), and delivered such a glowing report as they did this weekend.
The Daily Mail sent the tv presenter Tim Lovejoy - known for programmes such as “Daily Brunch” on Channel 4 and “BT Sports Panel” - to Trysil. He is a snowboarding enthusiast, and loved every minute of carving through the snow.
- They were fabulously flamboyant flakes, the sort Disney would conjure up in a CGI studio. We were told that even without natural snow, the resort can do a bit of Disney magic and conjure up enough artificial stuff to ensure there’s skiing every day, Lovejoy writes.
He continues to give praise both his hotel, the slopes and the food (a reindeer burger appealed to his tastes).
The burning question however, was the following: Did he find it to be too expensive? Lovejoy admits that he had been warned about Scandinavia being 'very expensive'.
But while the food and alcohol didn’t come cheap, he felt that the trip gave good value for money.

- Everything in Trysil felt new and modern. The food was delicious. The people were friendly, with none of the ‘attitude’ you get in the Alps. And the snowboarding was fantastic. Norway is definitely a place I will be going back to for a winter holiday. Five stars all round, he concludes.
PS: The Daily Mail wasn’t the only Brit newspaper that wrote a report from Norway this weekend. The Telegraph also wrote an intriguing story about the visit to Polar Park outside of Narvik.

When nature cuts to black.
Has the unique atmosphere of the northern winter ever been captured as spectacularly on film? Goosebumps guaranteed.
