The coastal trail in the village of Bud passes through the woods and winds along the coast, past several scenic viewpoints before returning back through the village itself. A walk along the trail is a wonderful beginning or end to a drive along the Atlantic Ocean Road.
Bud was once the biggest trading post between Bergen and Trondheim. These days, it’s a charming fishing village.
There are varied lodging options along the Atlantic Ocean Road, with some stunning locations available.
Håholmen Havstuer is a hotel, restaurant, and pub occupying the former fishing village of Håholmen. Situated on a tiny island, the hotel is accessed by boat from Geitøya Island on the Atlantic Ocean Road.
Not far from Farstad Beach is Hustadvika Guesthouse where every room comes with a sea view.
The Atlantic Road Cabins (Atlanterhavsveien Sjøstuer) in Kårvåg offer fully self-contained cabins and camping.Alternatively you can stay in the bigger centers, Kristiansund or Molde.
- While the trail is quite good, it is a bit too narrow and rough for wheelchairs. Most strollers should handle the trail fine.
