You can experience everything from mountain walks on the islands, footpaths in the centre of town, steep mountain sides alongside the fjords, to tours on the Ålfot Glacier. The vast mountain area in the eastern part of Flora district offer good walking experiences. Here you will find good river stretches with good trout fishing. We encourage everybody to plan their trips in the mountains carefully. Make contact with the local residents or the Tourist Office for information about distances, weather conditions etc.
On the south/east side of Svanøy you will find signposted footpaths of various lengths. For those who prefer not to walk in the terrain, the roads provide a good alternative. A pleasant walk to the Norwegian Deer Centre and Erikstad Farm.
Lilleåsen, Storeåsen, Brandsøyåsen - in walking distance from the centre of Florø. The view spans from the archipelago to mountains and glaciers in inner Sunnfjord. In the booklet "Til fots i Flora" which has been translated into 3 different languages, you will find a map and descriptions of 34 trips in Flora district.
The islands off Florø provide pleasant walks. Here the mountains rise up out of the sea and offer small and big challenges. The highest mountain, Store Batalden, towers approximately 500 metres above sea-level.
We recommend a visit to the islands of Fanøy and Store Batalden, where there are many "undiscovered" and exciting tour possibilities.

The tour map of the Ålfot Glacier has detailed routes, and a short description of 55 trips. In the area you can find several tourist cottages which can be used.
