Tourdescription: The hike starts at the quay, then upwards along a tractor road, through farmland, past cultural heritage sites, and up to the school building in Fonno. A directional signboard points north to the marked path up to the highest point of the island, the cairn at Ramsberget, 149 m asl. In the cairn there is a guest book, where you may write your name. Here is also a good view of The Fitjar islands +  the municipality of Austevoll to the north, Fitjar and Stord to the south and Bømlo to the west. In Fonno farming is still a way of life, and both Aberdeen Angus, horses and an old brand of sheep may be seen.
