Guided tour of Olav's Mine

There has been mining the Røros region since the 1640’s. Today the hammer blows have subsided in the mines, the horses no longer pull heavy loads of ore down from the mountains, but traces of activity still tells this story.


Join us for an hour’s walk through mining history. The tour begins in the mining museum, with an introduction to the region’s geology, and how the mines were operated. Together with a guide, we walk 500 m underground through tunnels in Nyberget Mine and Olav’s Mine and 50 m down to the massive Miner’s Hall. Sound effects and lighting add to the authentic feel.
