Trysil is Norway’s largest ski destination in winter and an eldorado for cycling in summer. Surrounded by unspoilt nature, Trysil was one of the first holiday spots in Europe to achieve the prestigious Sustainable Tourism certification.
Family-friendly Trysil is situated close to the Swedish border, about two and a half hours from Oslo. Here, you’ll find Norway’s biggest ski resort, which offers a varied set of challenges, regardless of whether you’re looking for wide slopes, terrain parks, or off-piste.
There are also a number of activities to choose from outside of the ski slopes, such as dog sledding, sleigh rides, and ice fishing. If you want to go cross-country skiing, you can enjoy no less than 100 kilometres of groomed cross-country tracks around the mountain.
With its deep forest, wild river, and inviting mountains, Trysil is also an ideal base for summer activities such as whitewater rafting, hiking, and fishing.
