Fitjar's mountain wilds are easily accessible. Hiking maps can be purchased at the Tourist Information Office. The new path to Svartavatnet lake is a good hike. The walk begins at the parking space by the water power station, and leads to Svartavatnet. The walk is about four kilometres long. The path is adapted to the needs of wheel chair users, and has a number of good picnic spots with a view over the Fitjar village. Families with prams, wheel chair users and pensioner groups are frequent users of the path.
Also try the walk in Rossneset. Park by the club house near the sports grounds. The path starts behind the club house.
