One of the first holiday hotspots in Europe to receive Sustainable Tourism certification, Trysil lies near the Swedish border just a short drive north of Oslo. It is one of Norway’s largest ski destinations, with its dense forests, wild rivers and soaring mountains providing a backdrop for a variety of recreational pursuits throughout the year.
