Røros


The former mining town of Røros in winter is one of those rare places that warmly welcomes you even though the town endures months of sub-zero temperatures under a thick blanket of snow. It must be the old wooden snow-capped houses. Some are deep red, orange or yellow, most of them dark brown or ink black. They exude charm and cosiness, inviting you to explore this fairy tale-like town built over centuries in challenging climatic conditions and by heavy labour in the copper mines in the ground below.

Situated 650 meters above sea level in the central part of mountainous Norway, the town of Røros is a vibrant community of about 3700 inhabitants. The people here live and work in the same old wooden houses built 2-300 years ago.
