Welcome to Christmas in the Røros region

In the darkest time of the year, the Christmas lights in the Røros region are lit. Streets and houses, cottages and trees are adorned with thousands of twinkling Christmas lights. The temperature creeps steadily down the scale, and to create the perfect Christmas atmosphere, a white, soft blanket lays over forests, fields and buildings. This lovely, frozen time brings Christmas peace.

This is Destination Røros

Destination Røros stretches from Nord-Østerdalen in Hedmark county to the southernmost part of Trøndelag county and also borders on Sweden. The Forollhogna and Femundsmarka National Parks surround one of Norway’s most exciting areas of natural and cultural history.

HISTORY AND CULTURE

This mining town began to take form in 1644, when the first copper ore was extracted on the mountain plateau. Among the people trying to survive in the mountains with its unforgiving winters, were the indigenous people of Scandinavia, the Sámi.

Today, the small town of Røros is almost like a living museum, as the town centre with its authentic wooden structures has many listed buildings.
