Aure - a municipality named "Trout"

Obviously, there must be a lot of fish in a municipality with so much water; fjords, lakes, rivers, rain... In the Norwegian, the name Aure (=trout) is both charming and familiar, but distinctly odd.
It is located between the city of Kristiansund and Trondheim, and you can reach here by road/bus and boat. The municipal border is an artificial one for tourists, so what is interesting for visitors here is the coastal landscape encompassing the entire area between Molde/Kristiansund and the Trondheim fjord. there are few singularily outstanding sights in Aure, but rather a heap of smallish adventures spread around. Few people live here, so what you will be looking for is landscapes, some nice fjord views, mountain hikes, perhaps kayaking if you got one (rental is possible), fishing in the sea and mountain lakes etc.

Top things to do

Fjord visits: there are a few places that give nice views of the fjord landscape here, notably Brekka, Fonna mountains and Mistfjord.

Mountain hikes: good hiking just off the road anywhere, but the main attraction is the week-long Fjord Route encompassing Aure mountains. Self-service huts along the way.

Local food: Only one main place of note, (t b continued)
