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 flow in Magic Moose – there are routes for every level of difficulty.
Even the youngest can find their flow in the pump track and skills course.
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.
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.
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. In summer, you can treat yourself to coffee and a waffle here …
… or bring supper on an evening bike ride in the mountains and enjoy the sunset.
Experience Trysil in summer!
