Four-day incentive suggestion in Røros

Find out what UNESCO-listed Røros can offer groups. This suggestion includes dog sledding, Sami culture, kick-sledding and the Olavsgruva Copper Mine.

Day 1 - Arrival

Flight to Røros. If the weather allows, we can use horses and sledges for the transfer to the hotel; the luggage will be transported separately by bus. Accommodation is offered at Røros Hotel or Vertshuset Røros.

Day 2 - Dog sledding

Morning – dog sledding with Alaskan Husky Tour
Dog sledding is once-in-a-lifetime, magical experience. You will be trained in harnessing the dogs by Ketil Reitan, an outstanding musher who has participated in the five longest dog races in the world. After the adventure, a delightful lunch is served in a heated lavvu, a circular tent with an open fireplace in the middle.

Afternoon - city tour of Røros
Two local guides will pick up the group at the hotel for a tour of the charming city centre of Røros. A concert on the church's baroque organ can be arranged. You can also hire chair sledges (“sparkstøtte”), wooden chairs welded on two metal runners – a fun, Norwegian invention that is easy to master.

Dinner is offered at Røros Hotel, Vertshuset Røros or in a Sami tent just outside the town.

Day 3 - Sami adventure

Experience Sami culture and history: go on a reindeer sleigh ride, try lassoing, feed the reindeer and finish with a traditional Sami lunch in a heated lavvu. Perhaps your hosts will even jojk for you.

Afternoon - kick-sledding
In the afternoon, return to Røros for a typical Norwegian activity: a kick-sledding-race, followed by hot chocolate in one of Røros’ cosy cafes.

In the evening there will be a four-course gala dinner at Røros Hotel.

Day 4 - Olavsgruva Copper Mine

Stroll through 300 years of history at the Olavsgruva Copper Mine. The tour is full of atmosphere with special light and sound effects, recreating the atmosphere of miners at work. Remember to dress warmly – it is only around five degrees Celsius all year in the mine.

Lunch is served at Kaffestuggu ,or “Stuggu” as it is called by the locals. In this traditional restaurant and popular meeting place, you can feel the atmosphere from the old mining community.

Transfer to the airport and departure to Oslo.
