Discover Trysil in summer

The view from the chairlift makes your heart beat faster. Soon, it’s your turn.

Ready … set … go!

In Trysil, all you have to worry about is which of the 70-something slopes to hit next.

Norway's largest ski resort is easily accessible, only two and a half hours from Oslo.

It is also close to the Swedish border and only 45 minutes from Scandinavian Mountains Airport, which opened in 2019.

The instructors from SkiStar Guides are easy to spot in their red suits. For group lessons or insider tips, they’re your go-to people.

Let them steer you to the snow park, the coolest off-piste areas, and popular slopes like those in the Vihammerskogen forest.

They can also show you how it’s done if this is your first time skiing …

… or teach your little ones in the ski school.

Valle the snowman hangs out here too, and sometimes he puts on a show or arranges a treasure hunt!

Most cabins and hotels are located right by the slopes, which means that you never have to walk far – it’s ski-in, ski-out.

If you want a more secluded place to stay, spend the night in a tree top at "Lykketoppen" or "Elvehytta".

Wherever you choose to live, you can have fun in the snow all day – even after the sun goes down, as some slopes have floodlights for night skiing.

Later, show off your dance moves during après-ski at a local bar or restaurant like Laaven.

Still, there’s more to this winter wonderland than wide slopes and après-ski.

In and around Trysilfjellet mountain, you’ll find more than 100 kilometres of freshly groomed cross-country tracks.

Glide through the forest or towards the mountains and get a new perspective on Trysil’s beautiful surroundings.

Popular starting points are the Skihytta cabin and Fageråsen.

Action-packed days in the snow will definitely make you hungry. Luckily, you can get to more than 30 eateries from the slopes, and they serve everything from pizza and fondue to local cuisine and Asian bowls.

Delicacies from the Trysil region range from moose and “pultost” (sour milk cheese) to “rakfisk”, a fish dish made from fermented trout.

Check out Parken Bistro & Bar, a restaurant and brewpub in town, for a combination of Nordic food and craft beer.

For a change of pace, and – let’s face it – warmer temperatures, a dip in the pool at the Radisson Blu Resort Trysil's waterpark will do you good.

When you’re warm enough to go back outside, try something that doesn’t require skis.

Go on a sleigh ride through the woods, join a guided snowshoe hike, or let huskies show the way through unspoilt nature on a dog sledging tour.

Trysil has achieved the certification Sustainable Destination. Although this does not mean that the destination is sustainable, it does mean that it has made a commitment to work systematically to reduce the negative effects of tourism, while strengthening its positive ripple effects.

Your next winter adventure is calling.
