Trysil, being one of the largest and most popular ski resorts in Norway, offers 66 slopes that are connected together by 31 lifts on 3 sides of the mountain. Apart from skiing, visitors can engage in many other activities, which will surely amplify the overall experience.
There is always something going on in Trysil, as there are many fun things to do for all age groups. Children can play at a Lego tent at the foot of the main slopes with a giant playpen, while families can enjoy dog sledging and sleigh rides through the woods and relish this natural wonderland.
Dog sledding is one of the most popular activities of the location. You can choose to drive your own sledge for a 20-minute to overnight trips, depending on your plans. Some of the resorts have partnered with Swedish adventure companies to provide their guests with a mesmeric journey through the Swedish fells over the border and back. This can prove to be an experience of a lifetime for your whole family.
The dog breeds include Alaskan and Siberian husky and are well-trained for the job. It will be hard for you not to fall in love with their friendliness and commitment.
Horse Sleigh rides offer you the chance to enlighten your soul with a scenic trip around the tree lines and the setting sun upon you. You will be all cosy under reindeer skins while breathing the fresh air. You can also camp in the woods with your friends, cook your meal and have a real camping escapade.
Hiking and Mounting Touring
This is an ideal activity for families and kids. You can either take this challenge on your own or hire a guide. Tracks are built for you to hike to the top of the mountain where the view is unrealistic. There is nothing for miles on every side and the farthest you would see civilization is the base village, which is only 2km away from the chairlifts.
Swimming and Flow riding
There is an indoor water park at the resort, which consists of a large main pool with currents, deep pool, 2 children pools and a Jacuzzi. Starting off your morning with a swim and a classical view out of the glass windows would get you warmed up nicely for the skiing runs later in the day. Another attraction of this park is a Flow rider where you could surf on artificially created waves. However, it has to be booked in advance due to high demand.
Skiing is one of the major attractions of Trysil, however, nowhere else would you be able to ski down the scenic pistes at night in the glow of the floodlights. Snowboarders also love this night time fun and join along with the skiers, which sometimes results in a healthy competition. This is also great entertainment for onlookers as they can cheer for their friends and family.
There is plenty to do if you are in Trysil. For skiing fans, the slopes are far less crowded than the ones in The Alps, which can be a great relief. SPA and bowling facilities are also provided for someone who is not into adventure but got dragged along with the family. In short, Trysil holds something for every penchant.
