Fly to Røros

2000 feet over sea level, with a dry inland climate, Røros can be an icy place. It has the coldest temperature ever recorded in Norway: -58.5 °F. So the locals need to know how to stay warm. A colorful blanket from Røros Tweed may do the trick, or you could sit by a bonfire during the blue hour.

Røros will stimulate all your senses. Have a taste, fill your lungs with fresh air, feel the frost on your cheeks and enjoy the changing seasons here in the mountain town.
 

Activities in Røros

Some people say the soul of the town is deep in the mountains, where the copper ore lay in thick layers, where men worked for 300 years mining it. A guided tour will take you deep into Bergmannshallen – and take your breath away.

Another subterranean adventure can be found at Røros Bath and Spa. 80% of the building is under ground level. Enjoy the fresh air and the view of an old wooden church from the outdoor pool. 

There are also activities to keep you warm. How about dog sledding with seven Siberian huskies, or a sleigh ride among the old wooden buildings, wrapped up in a reindeer hide? Or you could visit the Christmas market in December and find local gems.

If you prefer the warmer season, you should come and see the historical reenactment Elden, which is performed every summer.
