Destination Roros, Norway

The old mining town of Røros, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1980, was originally established in 1646, and now hosts over 1 million visitors annually. With the end of mining in the late 1970’s, Destination Røros has been instrumental in facilitating a broad-based multi-stakeholder approach to reversing the area’s environmental degradation and economic decline and creating a thriving, sustainable tourism destination.
