If you want to try something other than riding in Trysil then you heading out on a husky dog sledding experience comes highly recommended, where you can experience the adrenaline rush of driving your own dog sled. The experience can last from an hour to a half day trek, if you have never drove a husky sled before it is an experienced not to be missed and feels even more special in the wilds of Norway.


For something totally out of this world book yourself onto a star trip with Star hunting Trysil, Tim Boocock a Yorkshire man who runs the tour spotted the opportunity for showing off the night sky in a true dark area. The Norwegians apparently questioned his sanity showing people the stars but the trip is proving extremely popular. The trip also involves a private transfer to Tim’s secret stargazing spot where he speaks passionately about stargazing and shows you how to get started on finding things. On a clear night you can easily see the Milky Way, seven sisters and other spectacles, shooting stars are also a common sight and if you are lucky enough you may even get an appearance from the Northern Lights.

Tim is also looking to bring the relatively new sport of Fat Biking to the area so he is a guy to speak too if you want to try something different around the slopes.

If you want a little more choice The village of Trysil is just 2 km from the slopes and offers good local facilities, Most people don't venture into the town much, only for supplies but as 3 of Norway's largest grocery stores have outlets here it may be a wise move for those taking the self-catering route. If you want to get some ingredients closer to the slopes there is a well stocked supermarket in Trysilhoyfjellssenter.

Later in the evening bars/pubs/restaurants can be found in town but the Après is not too wild, Ski Puben - a more grown up English style pub is a nice place to head for a drink, nobody goes too crazy over here and you will find most Norwegians tend to gather in their chalets consuming their own supplies, and sometimes the lethal Norwegian moonshine. Look out for "karsk", a mix of coffee, sugar and 96% spirits. Small sips!

If you really want to go wild Laaven night club runs every Saturday in the Trysil Turistcenter and is the place to go if you want to stay out late, with live dj’s the place really gets going at Christmas and Easter time.
