Historic wooden houses, old mines, and traditional local food – step back in time in the mountain village of Røros.

On a gently sloping plateau, 628 metres above sea level, is where you’ll find Røros in Trøndelag. It is one of the oldest towns of wooden buildings in Europe and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Røros has achieved the certification Sustainable Destination. Although this does not mean that the destination is sustainable, it does mean that it has made a commitment to work systematically to reduce the negative effects of tourism, while strengthening its positive ripple effects. Here, you can explore charming streets with independent shops and workshops, or venture outside the town centre.

Visit the national parks Femundsmarka and Forollhogna, and go hiking, mountain biking, and fishing. Or head to Northern Europe’s largest canyon, Jutulhogget.

The mountain village is also known for being one of Norway’s leading regions for locally produced food. The barren landscape and the temperature in the area mean that all food grow slowly and develop a truly distinctive taste. During summer, you can join a local food safari.
