Many people think of "trail riding” as a niche activity for cycling fanatics. In Trysil, nothing could be further from the truth – here everyone will find the perfect trail. Novices can practise in the pump track and skills course until they are ready to hit the Bike Arena.
Easy green and blue trails can be enjoyed by everyone, including children who have learnt to cycle without training wheels. There is also an extensive network of natural trails, and you can take the lift up to some very exciting bends and turns. So when we say that there is a trail for everyone, we really mean it – from beginner to pro and from 6 to 60 years (and more!).
Right in the middle of the resort, you will find the Magic Moose. This is a 7.5 kilometre long cycling trail (one of the longest in Europe, we're pleased to say) with jumps, turns, rocky sections and long wooden constructions. Plenty of flow, lots of fun and completely free to use 24/7. We recommend that you go when the lift is open however, as it is the easiest way to get there.
The new area Gullia offers cycling experiences you cannot find anywhere else. Centrally located at Trysil Turistsenter, Gullia consists of green and blue trails with lots of fun challenges. Or how about 350 metres of joined wooden bridges through the Sherwood forest? The constructed cycling paths are also great for the youngest in the family. Discover your style and find a path that works for you.
The high season runs from 15 June to 15 October. The trails are open as long as there is no snow.

The mountain race Topprittet is a real challenge for those who get a buzz out of tough climbs. Join the cycling party!
