Østre Torfinnstind

Østre Torfinnstind or “Eastern Torfinnstind” is the highest one of the mountain Torfinnstindane’s three peaks. At 2119 meters above sea level, it rises majestically in the sky behind Torfinnsbu, and can be seen from most mountains in the southern area of Jotunheimen.

Østre Torfinnstind or “Eastern Torfinnstind” is the highest one of the mountain Torfinnstindane’s three peaks. At 2,119 meters above sea level, it rises majestically in the sky behind Torfinnsbu, and can be seen from most mountains in the southern area of Jotunheimen. The hike is of the more challenging sort, and requires you to be in good physical health. But once you reach the top, the trip is well worth the challenge. In addition to magnificent views of the spectacular surroundings; one can – on a clear day – see almost all the way to Oslo. Do not forget to bring your camera!

For an even bigger challenge we also offer tours across all three Torfinnstind peaks.

Eastern Torfinnstind is located in the southern part of Jotunheimen, by the shores of lake Bygdin in the municipality of Vang. You can access the area by catching the Bitihorn ferry from Bygdin (the place), and hopping off at Torfinnsbu.

The hike takes anywhere from 3 to 5 hours (breaks not included) and can easily be carried out as a daytrip. From the boat docks at Torfinnsbu at 09:50 am, you have just over 6.5 hours before you have to be back for the return to Bygdin.
