Trails. Turns. Flow.
Down the mountainside and between the trees.
Two and a half hours from Oslo, close to the Swedish border, is where you’ll find Trysil – one of Norway’s top family-friendly mountain biking destinations.
With a myriad of purpose built trails, a chairlift to the mountain top, and 100 kilometres of natural single tracks, Trysil Bike Arena is a source of excitement for thrill-seekers of all ages.
From the playful trails in Gullia to the magic flow trails in the mountains – there are routes for every level of difficulty.
Even the youngest can find their flow in the pump track and the bike parks.
When it’s time to refuel, head to one of the many eateries in Trysil and indulge in everything from pizza and Asian bowls to local cuisine.
The region’s delicacies range from moose burger and sour milk cheese to “rakfisk”, a fish dish made from fermented trout.
Many locals recommend Kveik, a restaurant and brewpub, for a combination of Nordic food and craft beer.
Action-packed days will make you long for a good night’s sleep, and in Trysil, your hotel can be part of the experience.
Keep an eye on the tracks from Radisson Blu Resort Trysil, breathe in the mountain air at Radisson Blu Mountain Resort & Residences, or get close to nature in the Dome Hotel or a cosy treetop cabin.
To change it up, try locally made goat cheese at the Bryn Farm and say «hello» to the goats – they will warm your heart with their charm.
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.
Ready for some more action? Challenge the rapids!
Choose between the kids-friendly tour or face the splashing water in the more powerful streams.
The Trysil river is also a top spot for fly-fishing if you want to find your zen while you wait for the fish to bite.
If you prefer to stay dry, test your balance in the climbing park Høyt og Lavt …
… or embark on one of the family-friendly hikes in Trysil.
The 8.4-kilometre long round trip to Skagsvola is spectacular and a bit strenuous, but still suitable for children that are regular hikers.
Another popular hiking destination is the Brannvakthytta cabin at the top of mount Trysilfjellet.
Take an evening bike ride in the mountains and enjoy the sunset.
Experience Trysil in summer!
