Trysil is a mountainous district of eastern Norway running alongside the Swedish border. The centre of the region is the village of Innbygda. It lies about 12 miles north east of Oslo. It's a sparsely populated area dominated by north-south valleys, rivers and small lakes. The whole district is a popular tourist destination with plenty of opportunities for winter sports during the snowy seasons and fishing, rafting, biking, hiking and canoeing in the summer. There is also a selection of golf courses across the Trysil region, perfect excuse to hire a car in Trysil to transport your essential sports equipment on your trip.
Confusingly the Trysilfjellet mountain area has been given the name Trysil by the Skistar company that run the extensive ski centre in the heart of the district. Whatever it's called though, if you hire a car here it's easy to explore the four connected skiing zones with 31 lifts and 68 pistes for all levels. This is Norway's largest skiing resort. Trysil is believed to be the site of the first-ever skiing race in 1862 and the oldest skiing club. Other attractions in the area include the Kongeparken in Nybergsund, where memorials show the spot that the Norwegian royal family hid from German bombing in the Second World War. There's also a popular local folk, craft and history museum in the village.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
