Røros rests on a gently sloping plateau in Trøndelag and is perched at 628 metres above sea level. Known as one of Europe’s oldest towns consisting of wooden structures, it proudly stands as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The town has earned the notable Sustainable Destination certification, which is bestowed upon destinations that work systematically to diminish the adverse effects of tourism. Stroll along charming streets lined with independent shops and workshops, or venture beyond the town centre to discover national parks such as Femundsmarka and Forollhogna, perfect for hiking, mountain biking, and fishing. Alternatively, visit Northern Europe’s largest canyon, Jutulhogget. This mountain village is also renowned for being one of Norway’s leading producers of locally grown food. The harsh landscape and climate result in slow-growing crops that develop a distinct flavour. In the summer, you can participate in a local food safari.
