Routes
Røros and its Circumference is on the UNESCOs World Heritage list, and many are surprised to find a particularly urban small town in the historical districts. As a sustainable destination it is important for us to also have a sustainable industry. This is reflected in our goal for more cycling tourism. The themes for the signposted cycling trails are based on the local history:

The Nordgruva Field – in the realm of Falkberget
The novelist Johan Falkberget lived and worked in this area, and he found great inspiration in the mining communities. The trails pass remains of several copper mines, as well as the Falkberget museum in his home in Rugeldalen.

Storwartz – in the miners footsteps.
This is where the mining started in 1646. Experience the history of Røros and the Copper Company by attending a guided tour in the Olav mine. In the Miners’ Hall down in one of the mines  you may even see concerts etc.

Mølmannsdalen – Traces of the Ice Age.
See how the last Ice Age has shaped the landscape and contributed to the unique fauna and flora in the area. Bike along lakes and gravel ridges in a varied, but child-friendly terrain. The Mølmannsdalen farm has a peculiar (ghost-)story.

Other Routes
Destination Røros covers the whole region, and we can also offer a variety of good cycle routes. There are old traffic- , summer- and gravel roads with little traffic, trails and paths. Cycle along Femunden, in rural villages and pastoral valleys, were you can find accommodation on the way. Plan a trip into the mountain farm areas of the national park village Vingelen, and in cross-country skiing World Champion Therese Johaugs hometown Dalsbygda. Many of the mountain farms are open, were you can enjoy traditional food either full meal or just a snack.

The parts around Aursunden are also popular for combining cycling and local food.

Bicycle rental is available at two places in Røros.
