Fjordcruise Romsdalsfjorden

Never Stop Exploring Your World

On a trip to Bud with "M/Y Bare Du"

We have the whole day ahead of us when we start from Vestnes or Molde at 09:00 on this trip, which will take approx. 9 hours. We go north and cross Romsdalsfjorden with a course towards Julsundet if we go from Vestnes. From Molde we keep straight west, and round in Julsundet towards starboard. At the entrance to Julsundet we pass Julneset on Mordal, where the Germans built bunkers during World War II. We pass close to the facility.

From here it carries further north, and we get Gossen with the Ormen Lange facility on the port side. Here, natural gas is brought ashore from the Ormen Lange field out in the Norwegian Sea. Eventually we round the north end of Gossen, and change to a more western course. In the distance we already see Søre and Nordre Bjørnsund. But we are not going there. We continue north, towards Hustadvika, and soon get Bud on the starboard side.

Bud, with the guest harbor where we add, located in the middle of the picture. Bjørnsund can be seen on the left in the picture.

We dock at the guest pier within the pier that shields the harbor from large swells from the Norwegian Sea. Here we are well and safely located, and close to the attractions and restaurants of Bud.

Our suggestion is to walk the 60 meters to Reataurant Bryggen, and have a better lunch there, before we take the stairs up to Bud Coastal Museum.

From the lunch table we have a fantastic view of the beginning of Hustadvika!

Bud Coastal Museum

After lunch we move up to Bud Coastal Museum. There is a lot to both look at and be updated on. This is an experience that will last a long time, and is highly recommended!

Bud Coastal Museum consists of two parts. Ergan Coastal Fort, which is a war history museum built around the German coastal fort from World War II, and the Coastal Museum which is a cultural history exhibition on two floors. Ergan Kystfort is a war history museum from World War II. The facility is a German war fort that has been restored. The fort was built on Ergan in the period 1941-1945 and includes facilities in the mountains with an operating room, command center and relocation room. Here are weapons, equipment and technical installations as well as personal equipment.

The exhibition also touches on the local war events. The Ergan coastal fort was part of the Atlantic embankment, a comprehensive defense system that ran from Murmansk to the Spanish coast. "Festung Bud", as the Germans called it, was 1 of about 1500 defensive positions from Norway's border with the Soviet Union in the north, to the Spanish border with France in the south. A total of 293 coastal forts were built along the Norwegian coast. We offer guided tours of two of the fort bunkers.
