Norway has ground to a halt…

Right now, each and every one of us must do all we can to support the national effort to contain the Corona virus. Under these circumstances, we are asking everyone to stay at home, avoid travelling and to follow the advice given by government authorities.

Coronavirus and travelling restrictions in Norway

Monday 16th of March at 08am Norway is closing down all international airports and harbors. People travelling in Norway, both Norwegians and foreigners, are responsible themselves for getting home, and to find out how to leave the region or the country. This also applies for the people who should leave their cabins in order to go home to where they have their permanent residency.

NEWS ABOUT ACTIVITIES AND EVENTS FROM DESTINATION RØROS.

Johan Falkberget

I am the miner, the labourer. That is what I am by nature, by feeling, – my poetry, my research is that of the miner and my view of the world is his. When you are descended from a 300-year old mining family, this is perfectly natural.

Cultural Experiences

Culture, landscape and history in the Røros region are closely bound together, thanks to mining heritage, rich cultural traditions, widespread farming and industrial diversity.

Local food – nature’s best

Did you know that this is one of Norway’s leading regions for locally produced food?

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.
