Røros in summer

The period from the end of June to August sees the mildest climate in the Røros region, and although July can see over 100 mm of rainfall, this is a relatively dry climate by Norwegian standards. On hot summer days, you can smell the smell of the wooden buildings and the streets are filled with people of countless nationalities. This is probably one of the busiest times for tourism, but also the time to enjoy the fresh mountain air outdoors. Translated with (free version)
