We’ve just returned from our skiing holiday in Trysil, Norway and I just wanted to share this amazing Winter destination and ski resort with you…
Trysil is situated in the heart of Norway, merely a 2 hour drive north from Oslo Airport (watch this space as they are building a second airport only 45 min away – ready for travellers for the winter 2019/2020 season) with airport transfer directly to the SAS Radisson Blu Resort Hotel which has a spa & ski in/out – as well as several restaurant options, from pizza to fine dining.
If you are feeling more adventurous and would like to ‘go off the beaten track’ when travelling, we can recommend staying at one of Trysil’s historical farms, via Airbnb, in a self accommodating flat for four people, tastefully restored to a modern standard. The host family is welcoming and helpful and will go out of their way to make your stay truly special.
But you are here to ski. Ski shops and rentals are all nearby and the children’s slope and ski school just outside the hotel. The friendly snowman, Valle, will ensure children’s love for both snow and skiing.
There several alp huts and restaurants on the slope but our favourite is the charming Knettsetra which is almost like a mini mountain village of timber cottages, housing several bars, cafes and restaurants.
The pistes are well groomed, the snowpark with rails, boxes and jumps are perfect for acrobats and there’s plenty of snow to go off piste too!
We went on our first Trysil ski holiday in 2008, with a nearly 3 year old who was skiing for the first time. With our first hand experience Trysil was included in our round up of the Top 5 Best Ski Destinations for Families.
Trysil is a proper magical winter wonderland, a beautiful snowy mountain surrounded by endless forest and a tiny authentic Norwegian village with shopping, restaurants and apres ski, super friendly locals and just excellent skiing conditions, with a season stretching from November to May.
10 years on after our first visit to Trysil and we are in still in love with this magical ski resort.
The best way to beat the holiday blues is to plan the next one, and in the UK we have both February half term and Easter holiday coming up.
