Aure is a typical coastal municipality of the county of Møre og Romsdal in Norway, with many beautiful small islands. Most of the population of 3,600 live near the coast. Tustna merged with Aure in 2006.

Get in

Aure is about 150 km west of Trondheim along E-39, between Orkanger and Kristiansund. At the Hennset ferry dock, take the ferry to Arasvika and follow the signs towards Aure or Mjosundet - both ways will take you to Aure as the road circles the island of Ertvågøya.

There are frequent bus routes connecting Aure to Kristiansund and Trondheim, although your own car is the best way to get around and travel at your own speed. Local buses are scarce and there is normally only one or two buses daily. Hitchhiking is a cheap way to travel and the local people are normally friendly and helpful. Cycling is a nice way to move around the varied landscape, although steep hills can be challenging.



Aure’s coastline is almost 300 kilometres long. Unique possibilities for angling from the shore and from the many bridges and sounds. Fishing from boats for herring, mackerel, saithe, cod and pollock. Great hunting for red deer in the large forest and mountain areas. Excellent fishing for freshwater trout and sea trout.

The scenery on Tustna is dominated by the coastal mountains. These over 900-metre-tall mountains, which rise straight up from the shore, form a chain in a north-south direction. Great walking, with several paths ascending to the summits, which offer fantastic views of the ocean and the fjords.




Many farms rent out rooms or flats. There are also various guesthouses.
