Hiking around the center of Lærdal
Start in the centre, cross the bridge towards Fodnes (National Road 5) and turn left. Follow the path along the lake until you come to the sign for Mjølkeflaten and the day trip cabin. From Mjølkeflaten you continue towards Stødno, then on the asphalted farm road to Øyabrui/ sjukehusbrui, and further along the river towards the centre.
The trip takes about 2 hours.
Start from Sviggum (crossing from E16, towards the hospital), here there is a well-marked path all the way up to Storehaugen, 908 m.a.s.l.
You can return the same way, or you can walk on a path at about the same height to the west, until you come to Hognåsen.
From here, there is a good path all the way down to the motorway.
You come down not far from Lærdal Hotell, a stroll from Lærdal holiday and leisure park and the centre.
Start at Oftabrua, ca 300 m east of the hospital, 2 km from the centre.
Walk on the left side of the river up to the stølsbrui, over this to the information board where the stølsvegen begins. The path has route guidance and city name signs. Oftedalen lies at about 780 m.a.s.l. and the trip takes around 2-3 hours from ofta. There are many fine points up here, where you can enjoy fantastic natural scenery and views of the valley and fjord.
