Esja, (914 m) For many citizens of Reykjavík this mountain is virtually a part of the city, and indeed it often protects it from the full fury of the north–east winds in winter. Good viewing points are Kerhólakambur (850 m), Kistu­fell (830 m) and Þverfell (guest book). There are many routes up the mountain, the most popular being from Mógilsá and Esjuberg.
