Over Rørosvidda med hest og slede


Across Rørosvidda by horse and sleigh

With winter in your face and history behind you...


Throughout the centuries, horse and sleigh has been the main form of transportation for trade to Røros. The travellers from beyond the mountains became a familiar sight, and they brought with them tales of their world. Swedes, also known as Forbønder, were very welcome guests when they stopped to rest and share food, music and stories at the "journey farms". To this very day these trips are still being made to Rørosmartnan.


At Vauldalen Fjellhotell we are passionate about giving you the same experience – sitting in a horse-drawn sleigh and feeling the tingling thrill of being part of a midwinter adventure. On the farms they wait in anticipation for our arrival, for this is a rare opportunity to share stories, the latest news about people from the town and sample goods that are otherwise difficult to get hold of.


The route over Rørosvidda runs along the old winter road, just the same as was used in the past. The strik­ing beauty of nature, untouched by the passage of time – witnessing it all really is very affecting. When lodging at the "journey farms" you will see that they care equally about attending to humans and horses. One thing is for certain: when the sound of the Forbønder is heard people gather around them in delight. This is their chance for social interaction between village and city – today, just as in the past. This is what we hope you will share with us! 

This journey is suitable both for private individuals and businesses. Do you have trouble finding an anniversary gift? -an experience out of the ordinary - A journey through a World Heritage that very few people get to experience today!

We wish you welcome to the experiences, which provide balm for body and soul.
