The realm of the musk ox

The peek of the Snøhetta with its 2286 meters above the sea level is the most prominent symbol for the Dovre mountain (Dovrefjell in Norwegian). The viewpoint Snøhetta is open during the summer and the train station is localted a short walk away from it. Just follow the gravel path, which is even wheelchair friendly, and enjoy the open views.

On the Dovre mountain you will be able to participate in a guided musk ox safari also during the summer. A unique opportunity to see this amazing creature up close. These safaris last between five to seven hours, so make sure you are wearing appropirate comfortable clothes and hiking shoes. There are around 200 musk oxen inhabiting the Dovre-Sundall Mountain National Park.

Adventures in Helgeland

Helgeland is a large region north for Trondheim. Destinations like Mosjøen or Trofors are hidden gems most tourists rarely get to see.

At Trofors you will get to try rafting and salmon fishing in the river Vefsna. And a visit to Mosjøen is almost mandatory – with its Helgeland stairs, the largest stone stairs in the world with over 4000 steps! From there you can try the zipliner back to town! As coastal destinations you will be able to eat exquisite fish and sea food – so why not stop by?

Take the train to the skiing slopes

If you happen to travel to Norway during the winter, do as the locals and venture to one of our destinations with ski resorts.

SJ NORD stops at Kvitfjell, just 50 meters from the ski lift. This is a destination that almost comes with a snow guarantee and is located just two hours north of Oslo. The resort has slopes for all types of experience levels, a ski rental store, and seven different restaurants.

Would you like to have a proper Norwegian cabin experience? Norwegians love cabin trips! Take the train to Oppdal, which also happens to have Norway’s largest ski resort, and book your stay.

There has never been an easier and more climate smart way to get to the mountain than by train.

Local food and culture at charming Røros

Local gastronomy

Few places in the country have the amount of locally produced food that Røros has. Therefore we know Røros as Norway’s local food capital.

All the foodies will love a good food safari at Røros. Or maybe a visit to the Røros brewery, to one of the many creameries, meat producers or bakeries available. Without a doubt, a treat for the taste buds.

For the body and the soul

How about some me-time after a delicious meal?

At the Røros Hotell Bad & Velvære you may press the pause button in a 32°C warm pool with views to the old Røros church.

An outdoor bubble bath and a warm pool are also awaiting to relax you.
