Manners and common sense on the trail
Having great trails to ride on is not a right, but a privilege. The Norwegian organization for mountain biking (NOTS) urges everyone to be considerate of the trails. Here are the most important guidelines for summer trail wit.

1. Be considerate and give way for pedestrians.

2. Limit your speed, don’t be a danger or nuisance to others.

3. Don’t make new trails.

4. Don’t ride on vulnerable trails right after heavy rainfalls.

5. Don’t make the trail wider.

6. Carry your bike through marshlands to prevent deep grooves.

7. Don’t lock the rear wheel when you ride down steep hills.

8. The biker riding uphill has the right of way.

Many people think of “trail riding” as a niche activity for cycling fanatics. In Trysil, one of Norway’s largest mountain biking destinations, nothing could be further from the truth. Whether you’re a total novice or an experienced adrenaline seeker, you’ll find plenty of challenges to fit your level of expertise in Trysil Bike Arena.

Play around in the bike parks

Check out GT Bike Park, Radisson Blu Bike Park, and Fageråsen Bike Park for features such as pump tracks, jump lines, dual slalom trails, and other fun features to play around with. Perfect both for testing the bike for the first time, and if you want to freshen up that rusty technique. In GT Pro Park you'll be able to try Norway’s largest pump track, jump lines, drop and Twin Peaks, a parallel slalom course where two cyclists can ride the exact same course at the same time.

Maximise your fun in Gullia

Gullia offers biking experiences you won’t find anywhere else in Scandinavia. The trails stretch from easy greens to advanced black, and everyone can find suitable courses in Gullia’s 35-kilometre long trail network – even children who have just taken off their training wheels.

Cheerful trails with fun challenges and impressive wooden bridges let you enjoy the scenery while you discover your style, whether you want to keep your wheels on the ground or go for the jumps.

Hot tip: Get used to the easiest trails before you hit the more advanced trails in Gullia or the Magic Moose.

Lift-based biking

If you want to set out on the extensive network of natural trails, fly down one of the longest flow trails in Europe, or take your family on a trip around the mountain, you can take the Fjellekspressen chairlift to the top of Trysilfjellet.

Feel the flow in the Magic Moose

This 7.5-kilometre long cycling path is a flow trail with smooth berms, easy whoops, and wooden bridges that will give even the most ambitious mountain biker a solid adrenaline rush. Everyone who masters the blue level can enjoy this trail.

Go high mountain biking with the kids

Fjellrunden is a 13-kilometre family-friendly cross-country trail around the mountain. This route is also perfect for an easy e-bike trip, and some parts are even wheelchair-friendly.

Another tip is to check out Fjellflyten – a fun high mountain flow trail that will take you down to Trysil høyfjellssenter.

Find the perfect singletrack

In the mountain, you’ll also find a great variety of natural singletracks. Some of the red and black trails are demanding and require advanced technical skills. If you want even more challenges away from other people, you might be tempted to explore the 100 kilometers of bike trails in nature.

Everything in one place

Trysilguidene can give you an introduction to mountain biking, help you develop your skills, and take you on guided trips. You can rent all the equipment you need to ride right off the trail, and there are plenty of restaurants and accommodation options nearby.

Other outdoor adventures in Trysil include a high rope course, rafting, hiking, and fishing. You can also go golfing and horseback riding.
