These are the green islands
The Rennesøy islands consist of a beautiful combination of nature typical of the North Sea coastline and stunning fjord landscapes. Rennesøy includes eight inhabited islands: Rennesøy, Mosterøy, Bru, Fjøløy, Klosterøy, Vestre Åmøy, Sokn and Brimse. The climate on the islands is maritime, mild and humid, making them green for most of the year.
Explore the islands on two wheels
A popular pastime on the islands are bike tours. Most areas are easily pedalled also for the youngest, making it ideal for families with children. The entire island of Finnøy for instance is only 20 kilometres, and you can see tomatoes in production, fjord lights and mesmerising cultural landscapes. If you throw in a stop at the Hesby church from medieval times, you can tick the history box off your list too. Another option is to take the speed passenger boat from Stavanger to Nesheim and cycle the route Sjernarøyrunden (around 35 kilometres) passing Bjergøy, Aubø and Eriksholmen to the island of Kyrkjøy. Fishing is also good at the former marble quarry found here.
