    Fun and easy walk with dog and 9yo. Did not go all the way to the top because of the dog since there is a bit of climbing there.

    Easy nice walk.

    This a truly great walk, we recommend using sticks and good shoes. It's worth checking the weather forecast, you'll be rewarded with great view and a much more enjoyable stay at the top. The peeks have great colors (...

    Mjög fín leið að fylgja, ef maður vill fá beinustu leið upp á aðalhnúkinn.

    Easy and slow walk to the socalled Rock. Loads of people on Mt. Esja as usual. Weather was ok, foggy and snowing for a bit, but then in cleared and we could see towards Reykjavik

    This area near the capital is seldom visited. Interesting views. Lots of remains of human activities through the ages. One for the bird lovers.

    This was great 👍👍

    Nice and easy trail, a few steps from Reykjavik. No problems parking the car. Wonderful valley down beneath Selfjall. Note that this is a winter track in snow. I got good weather in the beginning, sun and good view, espe...

    Most part after the waterfall no trail. Best view on waterfall from this side of the river. Passing ruins of an old dam or something. You can just walk back the same way from the waterfall or continue over the mountain...

    Steinn winter version, not always on track. Snowblind and blizzard at top, and lot of snow over 400m.

    This trail starts and ends close to the farm Stardalur. It leads to a beautiful waterfall in the river Leirvogsá. The trail is optimal for a short hike close to the city. Despite it's proximity to the city, not many peop...

    Easy walk up, a bit steep sometimes. At the very top, take the right path up. It looks steeper but there is a rope that will help. We went down on the north side of the plateau. Maybe not easier but still OK.

    Nice hike to the top of Mount Esja, well signed. At Stein you can climb to the top, a bit technical, but if you're up for it, worth it on a clear day. Large parking lot at the bottom and a bus stop as well.

    Nice trip

    Start along the water, can make it a bit longer by following the path and not the road at 1/3. Last bit there is a path following the water back to the parking.

    Esja - hiking up to Steinn. Snowstorm and low clouds makes very difficult to hiking in to higher parts of this mountain.

    Recorrido bien marcado en su mayor parte, pero que salva un interesante desnivel. Algunas zonas con piedra y arena suelta. Pero muy recomendable, si hace buen tiempo las vistas son espectaculares.

    Svínaskarðsvegur er forn þjóðleið milli Mosfellssveitar og Kjósar. Hann sparaði mönnum sporin því annars þurftu menn að taka krók og fara fyrir Esju. Hann stendur hátt og þótti illfær að vetrum enda urðu þar nokkrir me...

    Grímannsfell er hæsta fellið í landi Mosfellsbæjar og nokkuð áberandi í Mosfellsdalnum þó að það standist ekki samanburð við hina ljósu Móskarðshnúka norðan megin dalsins. Þetta er þægileg leið til að komast á Stórhól og...
