Roros is small so it's not very difficult to find your way. The tourist office has a map and some basic info.. but not much self initiative coming from the people working there. They answer the question but thats it.

The tourist information organizes walking tours with excellent guides. I do this tour every time I come here, and not two of them have ever been the same, thanks to guides with different knowledge and different interests. I highly commend taking this tour, and then go back to see more yourself later.

They have a lot of brochures that you can take for free and have a look at almost all tourist attractions in Norway. They also carry a number of souvenir items that you can purchase.

We went to the tourist office to buy tickets for a guided tour around town and for the Olav's Mine. However, as we didn't have a car, and the Olav's Mine was 13 km outside town, we dropped it. We did the guided walking tour, which was quite nice. It included a visit to the church as well. At the... More

Family reunion group took a bus out to Røros and spent the day. The people at the information center were very nice. A group of us went on a guided tour and learned about the history of the area. It is a picturesque town and a great place to spend a day.

Røros is one of the best places i have been. the tourist center is frendly and helpfull. at winter time you can rent little "sleds" to kick around town. its good fun and cheap. the office give you all the information you need, and its easy to plan your days from there if you havent already done it

Röros is a UNESCO HERITAGE SITE and you feel the traditions, the cultural heritage as you walk down the cobblestone streets and yet....you can enjoy a delicious meal at the same time as you enjoy watching the historical buildings around since much of the historical buildings are enclosed with glass giving you an rewarding and exciting experience.
