You will love the trails of the Esja Mountain Range if you are an experienced trail runner. The tour includes a 600 meter climb with a stunning view over Reykjavik. There are few different paths that lead to the top and the possibilities for running around are many.


Mt. Esja.

The area is very popular among local trail runners and the race Mt. Esja Ultra is held there in June. Mt. Esja (914 m (2,999 ft)) often called Esjan is situated just 20 km north of Reykjavik. Esja is not a single mountain, but a volcanic mountain range, made from basalt and tuff-stone.

We create tailor-made running adventures for groups and individuals.
