One day soon the world will change for the better, and again it will be safe to travel. Travel in 2021 will be governed by coronavirus restrictions. Fewer people will seek out large, crowded cities, and most likely prefer the less crowded destinations. While we all wait, we can promise you that we are making sure everything is safe when we meet again.
While you are waiting for the doors to open, you can explore the Røros region from the comfort of your own home. Please stay safe and remember all good things come to those who wait. Or as we say in Norway: Den som venter på noe godt, venter ikke forgjeves.
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.
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.
