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.

For fun on two wheels, Trysil bike arena offers 100 kilometres of natural trails and more than 10 kilometres of handmade gravel trails for mountain bikers.

Increasingly many restaurants in Trysil take pride in fresh, local food. The ski resort itself has more than 30 eateries and restaurants.

In 2013, Trysil received the certification Sustainable Destination, a seal of approval given to destinations that work systematically to reduce the negative impact of tourism.
