We woke up to overcast skies, but it wasn't forecast to rain, so I thought we'd risk a hike to Mt. Esja, introduced in the guidebook as the place local residents went for hiking. Before that, we took a detour to the viking village, but went there to discover that the place was closed and had been closed for a couple of weeks. It's apparently not a year round destination, and the guidebook had neglected to tell us that.
Driving to Mt. Esja took a while, and we got confused by the Google directions, but once we got started, it was an impressive location.
