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.
