Hike to Torsteinen, Lærdal

With a trip to Torsteinen you get a lovely view of Lærdalsøyri and Lærdalsfjorden

You follow the right side of the stream (crossing a bridge from the left side in from the houses) up Oftedalen. Eventually you turn right towards Liastølen. You then continue uphill along the stream, before turning to the right and out again towards Lærdal. When you start to get a view of Lærdal, you follow the mountain side upwards to the left again until you reach the rock.

PS: The trip is registered in the GPS in the wrong direction (from top to bottom). Used approx. 3 hours up and 1.5 hours down.
