  • Your guide to Torsby Municipality


Torsby is nowadays a year-round tourist destination with a large variety of leisure activities, events, and facilities for recreation and accommodation. Come and discover the endless possibilities yourself!

Summer and winter activities

The favourable location of Torsby is the key to year-round tourism. Summer offers a fantastic variety of nature-based activities thanks to our abundant but “friendly” wilderness, in the form of forests, hills, lakes, rivers and streams. Visitors can enjoy activities ranging from bathing, fishing, canoeing, mountain biking, rafting and hiking to wilderness safaris. Autumn subsequently offers new possibilities, such as berry picking and hunting.

The winter season lasts from December to Easter and makes it possible to engage in activities that meet the requirements of every experienced winter tourist. The Torsby district counts no less than two alpine ski resorts, Branäsexternal link, opens in new window and Hovfjälletexternal link, opens in new window, and several cross-country skiing centres, such as Långbergetexternal link, opens in new window, Mattilaexternal link, opens in new window and Torsby Skidtunnel & Sportcenterexternal link, opens in new window. Other exciting activitities include snowshoe hiking, ice fishing, dog sledge tours and snowmobile safaris. On top of that, the unique ski tunnel is open for cross country skiing and biathlon all year round.

Tourist offices
