The traditional town of Røros is a modern community in which people live and work right in the middle of a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
In 2013, Røros received the prestigious certificate Sustainable Destination, a seal of approval given to destinations that work systematically to reduce the negative impact of tourism.
Røros is also known for being one of Norway’s leading regions for locally produced food. The barren landscape and the temperature in the region means that all food grow slowly and develop a truly distinctive taste. During summer, you can learn about Røros’ food history and products by joining a local food safari.

The certification Sustainable Destination is a seal of approval given to destinations that work systematically to reduce the negative impact of tourism. In addition to providing visitors with enjoyable experiences, the destination must preserve the local nature, culture and environment, strengthen social values, and be economically viable. The municipality and the travel industry must cooperate closely to assure that the destination is a great place both to live in and to visit.
