Day 1: The adventure starts in Røros

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. You can walk or in wintertime 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.

 

Wander the town’s colorful streets. In wintertime, borrow a free kicksled from the hotel, called a “spark”, to try out a popular local form of transport. The iconic church is considered one of the country’s most important religious buildings, with few changes since its construction in the 18th century, and its tower can be seen throughout town. 

In the afternoon you check into Røros Hotell. With a cosy and friendly atmosphere, this is an easy place to relax after a day exploring. A modern wellness center is a distinctive treat. Inside, encased by calming concrete and glass, is a 27-meter pool, hot tub, and sauna. A step outside sits another inviting hot tub and heated pool.

 

When evening comes, it's time to find your way to Vertshuset Røros, where you will be served 4-course dinner. The chef and his staff take inspiration from local quality ingredients and conjure up gourmet meals with clear inspiration from the food traditions and food culture of Røros


 

Day 2: From town to city

Before departure the next day, be sure to sample more local meats and cheeses with homemade bread at the abundant breakfast buffet. Then, take some time to delve into the intriguing local history before the 2.5 hour drive to Trondheim. Røros was once an important center for copper mining and the industry has left a significant mark on the area. Today, the town and parts of the surrounding landscape are a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Kaffestuggu is Røros’ oldest café and once again, local products like reindeer punctuate the menu. For a tasty souvenir, the supermarkets stock many regional specialties including flatbread, dairy products, and sausages. See more activities in Røros here.

 

The travel from Røros to Trondheim is easiest done by train, where you can sit back and relax as you enjoy the majestic landscape for just about 2,5 hours. For times and tickets, see entur.no. You can also travel by car, which takes about the same time. See the route here

 

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.

Upon arrival in Trondheim, check in to your hotel and prepare for dinner and drinks in the evening. Read more about your hotel of choice here;

 

Britannia Hotel

In the heart of Trondheim you will find the venerable Britannia Hotel. Since 1870, Britannia has served as the hub of Trondheim, a place where everyone from local politicians to visiting royalty, international stars, and Arctic explorers, have gathered to meet, share stories, and enjoy elegant hospitality.

Whether you are in beautiful Trondheim for a historic visit, a romantic weekend away, or if business travel brings you to the city, the hotel's 224 rooms provide you with the 5-star experience you would want from an international luxury hotel.

Bårdshaug Herregård

Originally a parsonage, Bårdshaug Herregård (Bårdshaug Manor) was purchased by architect, consul, and businessman Christian Thams in the 1890s. Known as a founding member of designing and exporting log buildings, Thams translated his work into rebuilding and renovating Bårdshaug Herregård to become a distinctive manor home. He was responsible for designing homes for many cultural luminaries including Brigitte Bardot, King Leopold of Belgium, and Eiffel tower designer Gustav Eiffel.

Leave modern life behind for a day and stay the night in the historical manor from the beginning of last century. Feel the atmosphere from a time long gone when you enter what was once the family home of Orkdalens most prominent family.

 


 

Day 3: One last slice of Trondheim

Wake up the next day and recharge at the spa or simply soak up the hotel luxury before check-out. Sit down for breakfast in Palmehaven, the exotic palm garden restaurant. The splendid buffet features award-winning Norwegian meats and cheeses and an array of fresh dishes. In addition, an à la carte menu offers barista coffee and specialities cooked to order.

 

Head out and wander the city centre, visiting some of the famous landmarks such as Nidaros Cathedral, Old Town Bridge, and the Bakklandet neighborhood. On a sunny day, take a short boat ride to Munkholmen Island, a popular recreation area in the Trondheimsfjord. See more activites in Trondheim here.
