Welcome to the coastal pilgrim route, Ørland. Here you can experience the medieval church Ørland Church and Austråttborgen from the late Middle Ages. Ørland has a beautiful coastal culture with large protected areas for seabirds and wetlands. The pilgrimage route from Brekstad to Austrått is approx. 7 km, along the coast on beautiful hiking trails. You will find information posters in the area you travelling. If you come by speedboat from Trondheim or Kristiansund, you can rent a bike from Ørland Kultursenter and get a great bike ride in the Austrått landscape. From the speedboat dock to Ørland Church, it is 1.4 km. Here you can experience both the church and the stories of the archaeological excavations, that show that the area has been an important place since Viking times. In Brekstad, you will find several cafes where you can buy lunch or take a coffee break. In the summer, Borgstua is open at Austråttborgen. Have a good trip.
