Welcome The Bright Polar Nights

Between the colourful autumn and the joy of Christmas, we've reached the season of the polar nights. The leaves on the trees have fallen and only the bare trunks remain. In the Røros region, the snow settles like a thin blanket over forests and mountains. Before all the Christmas lights are lit in December, we have nature's own white magic that shines a light for us. We're in the bright polar nights.

Mining safari in the footsteps of the people who lived here

The landscape in the Røros region is full of the exciting cultural remains of a mining industry that lasted for 333 years. Traces of the life and work of the people who lived here are literally lying around waiting for you to discover them.

Lazy summer days

At the peak of summer, the days are long and dry, the nights are light, the meadows are green, and the countryside simply bursts with life.

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.
