Norway’s biggest winter resort is a haven for skiers; but how can you get the most from Trysil if you are not taking to the slopes? There are many reasons for someone choosing not to ski or snowboard on a winter holiday - maybe it's down to a partner’s unshared passion, an injury, pregnancy, or caring for children on the trip. However, you will never be short of things to do in the beautiful Norweigan resort of Trysil.
Celestial Constellations and the Aurora Borealis
It is certainly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see the Norwegian forests from this unique perspective. Passengers will enjoy the beauty of the frozen plateaus and marvel at the utter tranquillity, with just the sound of panting dogs and sled runners cutting through snow breaking the otherwise total silence. For younger children aged eight or under, shorter trips are advised – temperatures in winter average minus nine degrees in this area, and sitting still in the sled can become very cold.

What you Need to Know
Trysil has a relaxed, health-conscious, Scandinavian wellness feel to it. It is a high-end ski resort, so consequently, costs are high. This is perhaps not the destination for hard drinkers or party animals looking for après ski.
Trysil makes a fantastic festive destination if you’re able to travel over the yuletide period. Christmas in Norway is predominantly celebrated on December 24th, with a traditional dinner consisting of dried mutton ribs called pinnekjott with potatoes and turnip. Christmas trees and decorations are in abundance in Trysil over the Christmas period but are arranged in a low-key, sophisticated manner.
