[originally, I thought about the title "Groovy Gruve", but then, only the Norwegians would get it] :-P Of all the interesting and diverting things that one could do in historic, cultural Røros (great local food, historic downtown, the church, the museum, the countryside) I would...More

It's down the mines we go. And I do mean down. Some places it was actually quite steep, and visitors should expect a lot of stairs. It's not a good idea to go down there if you have leg problems. That being said, it is...More

Good guided tour (available some times a day, in Norwegian or English). Interesting historical details. There was a mine here since the 1600's! Thrilling to be inside a "left a common work day" mine. Beautiful mineral and other insides of cavities. Some (patient) few-year-olds (with...More

I really wanted to go to Olav's Mine, as it was the economic driver underpinning the prosperity of Roros. Imagine my surprise when I arrived (by train) and found out that there is no bus or shuttle from Roros to the Mine. I asked at...More

You need to have good shoes, it's a bit slippery in places. Informative guiding on the way into the mine, and the way out you can take in your own pace and look at everything again. Definately worth a visit
