Aure municipality, and especially the island Stabblandet, where Grautaneset is situated, is known for fantastic hiking possibilities in the mountain. There are two mountain ridges on Stabblandet, the compact Innerbergssalen/Stabben along the western side of the island, and the mountains Storøra and Litløra that continue into a smaller ridge along the east side of the island. Between these ridges lies the valley Soleimsdalen.
Innerbergssalen is the highest mountain in Aure municipality with its 908 meters above sea level, which also makes it the highest top on an island in southern Norway. The island Tustna is located just across the bay from Grautaneset, another great location for hiking.
