Reykjavík from Mount Esja

Calling all adventure lovers to itself, Mount Esja is a beautiful mountain range in the northern side of Iceland. Rising to a height of about 900 meters above sea level, the mountain serves as one of the best trekking destinations in Iceland. Little rivers snake their way across the mountainside, adding to the charm of the place. The waters of these rivers are said to be clean enough to be drunk directly. The flat-topped mountain is also known for its stunning views of the glaciers, and is regarded as a great viewpoint for the Northern Lights.
