Trysil is a municipality in Innlandet county, Norway. It is part of the traditional region of Østerdalen. The administrative centre of the municipality is the village of Innbygda. The municipality of Trysil was established on 1 January 1838 (see formannskapsdistrikt).
The municipality (originally the parish) is probably named after an old farm - and this was most likely the original name of Prestgarden ("the vicarage"), where the first church was built. The meaning of the first element is unknown (maybe an old river name), the last element is sil which means "quiet stretch of a river". Prior to 1906, the name was spelled "Tryssil".
The coat-of-arms is from modern times. They were granted on 21 October 1991. The arms show two silver ski poles on a blue background. It is meant to symbolize Trysil in the past, present, and future. It was designed by Bjørn Ellefsæter.
One of the first-known, organized ski races was held here 22 January 1862. Roland Huntford, author of Two Planks and a Passion, describes this race as, "the first truly modern ski race." The famous Norwegian skier Halvard Morgedal won all the competitions that year. The Trysilgutten ski club, founded in 1861, is one of the world's oldest ski clubs. See also the Kiandra snow shoe club.
Farming and logging are traditionally the most important occupations in the municipality, and there are many wood related industries. The Trysilelva river was the last river in Norway with traditional timber floating. There is extensive wildlife, including a large elk population.
Trysilfjellet is the largest winter sports centre in Norway with 65 prepared slopes.
Trysil is bordered in the north by the municipalities of Engerdal and Rendalen, in the west by Åmot, and in the southwest by Elverum and Våler. The eastern border of the municipality is bordered in the north, east and south by Sweden. The main village in Trysil is Innbygda, which often is referred to as Trysil.
