Year-round tourism

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 and Hovfjälletexternal link) and several cross-country skiing centres, such as Långbergetexternal link, Mattilaexternal link and Torsby Sportcenterexternal link. Other exciting activitities include snowshoe hiking, ice fishing, dog sledge tours and snowmobile safaris. On top of that, the unique Torsby Ski Tunnelexternal link is open for cross country skiing and biathlon the whole year round.

Everything you need to know about accommodation, activities, events and sights in the Torsby district can be found on www.visittorsby.seexternal link (a website that is updated daily), and at our local tourist offices.

Tourist offices

Our tourist officesexternal link are located in Torsby center (Torsby Infocenter) and in Sysslebäck. These offices are open year-round and serve around 25,000 visitors per year and roughly twice as much contacts by telephone and e-mail.

The staff will help you find all information you need about things to see and to do, as well as about accommodation and restaurants, both locally and regionally. The tourist office in Torsby is an authorized “Blue-Yellow” office, which means that it also provides information for the whole of Sweden.

In both offices, it is possible to search online on an "info-computer" as well as via free WIFI access. You can also buy fishing licenses, postcards and a large assortment of souvenirs here. A number of life jackets are available for loan in Torsby Infocenter free of charge.
