    This is probably the most common track to the Esja plateau. It is a fairly easy walk. However from “steinn” to the top the track is rather steep and can be a challenge during wintertime, especially if it is hard snow and...

    This is a easy hike. I did it in quite a lot of snow, so my track is not the shortest and fastest. The view from the top, which is not high at all, is excellent in good weather

    Helgafell is very easy to hike on. Put there are several "peaks". One as a concrete column for geographical measurements and another one has a guest book to sign in. Nice view over Mossfelsbær town.

    Quite steep in the beginning after that a nice hike with a nice view

    A hike organised by my hiking club Útivist, great route, beautiful weather, hard to top. I've given it a difficulty grade of "moderate" only because it's fairly long, it's easy in all other respects.

    One of the components of the Esja massif is Kistufell, a chest-like formation (thus the name). A friend and I ascended the SW corner of the south face of Kistufell, then descended via the Gunnlaugsskarð pass. A nice hike...

    Góð ganga, auðvelt að finna hvar átti að fara. Líklega erfiðara ef það er kominn snjór, gæti jafnvel verið hættuleg leið...
