Enchanting Røros is a small town with a vibrant culture and compelling history. The town was once the site of a bustling copper works, and an interesting museum and mine tour recount the developments over time. Walk – or sled – through the streets and admire the rare concentration of centuries-old wooden houses and buildings.
The region’s mountain farms yield excellent produce and Røros has become a well regarded center for locally produced food in Norway. Each meal or snack is an opportunity to sample truly local food. The exclusive meats and award-winning cheeses are particularly remarkable.
Trondheim was an important settlement during the Viking Age and remained the capital of Norway until 1217. Today the compact city features landmarks such as Nidaros Cathedral and the wooden buildings of Bakklandet. Take a boat ride and explore the historic Munkholmen Island in the Trondheimsfjord. Bymarka, the city forest, is just a tram ride or short drive away.
