Many places follow sustainable principles, but being certified as a sustainable destination is an honour few qualify for. It takes years of work demonstrating their lasting commitment to providing the best possible experiences for their guests, while keeping the negative impact of tourism to a minimum. In addition, the destination must work to continually improve its business practices and relations with the local community, whilst safeguarding their natural and cultural assets, history and traditions.
The traditional town of Røros, which is known as one of Norway’s sustainable destinations, is a modern community in which people live and work right in the middle of a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The natural surroundings provide a splendid frame for the cultural and historic heritage of the UNESCO World Heritage Site Røros.
