For those tourists who appreciate an even mountain tan, it is best to come to Trysil in the spring, when the slopes of Mount Trysilfjellet are generously illuminated by the rays of the sun, and the risk of sunburn is close to zero. Trysil resort is located on the three slopes of Mount Trysilfjellet. According to local lore (almost all Norwegians are superstitious, even if they don’t consider themselves religious), the mountain forests are inhabited by a wide variety of spirits and creatures, including mountain trolls. When mountain trolls quarrel among themselves or want to harm people who do something bad to nature, avalanches occur. Of course, this legend is far from science, but there is no telling what could happen, and for the tourist’s own peace of mind, it is better not to break tree branches unnecessarily and, moreover, not to offend local animals.

Trysil: The Norwegian Treasury

By the way, those vacationers who want to be as close as possible to nature and sports can live in a cottage right on the mountain. Ski slopes start literally at the doorstep. Not so avid ski fans can stay in a hotel or cute houses in the old Norwegian style in the town of Trysil itself. This option will be optimal for those who want to be close to the bowling center, cinema, restaurants and nightclubs, dog and horse sled rentals.


How To Get from Oslo Airport to Trysil?

The nearest international airport to the Trysil resort is Gardermoen in Oslo. The distance from Oslo to Trysil is 160 km. The airport itself is located 48 km north of Oslo.

So, you are at Gardermoen Airport.

Your target is Trysil. More than a hundred kilometers is already a solid distance for Europe. However, there will be no difficulties in overcoming this path. Public transport in Norway has a well-deserved reputation for being comfortable and very punctual. In terms of strictly following the schedule, Norwegian planes, buses and trains are significantly superior to German punctuality. Scandinavians are much more disciplined, and any traveler can be sure that if he arrives at the bus stop or train station on time, the expected vehicle will arrive to the minute.
