The light changes and creates many different moods. We kept getting drawn to it. Nip down quick for a photo but then get out of the way to give others a chance. If you want a photo of the coastline do it somewhere up on the prom not right in front of where everyone else is waiting to get their... More

Located in the harbor on our way to the Harpa - interesting. Reminds me of a candelabra or hor d'ouvre display (add cheese cubes and olives!)

Beautiful sculpture a short walk from Harpa centre in Reykjavik. Well worth a visit when taking in the sights. A lovely view across the sea to the mountains

Interesting modern type sculpture at the port’s edge – worth a photo stop, then walk along the waters edge by the piles of stones to the concert hall.

Busy with tour buses however worth the effort for a visit. Looking like a futuristic scorpion it's a representation of a Viking long ship looking out to sea. The walk along the harbour front is also worth it to see the nearby concert hall and the old harbour.

Great view out on to the sea and mountains on the other side. However it is unusually situated next to a road. Worth a stop and a photo

Passed this sculpture on our walk along the seafront. Very unusual yet very pretty. Definitely worth a look and a great photo opportunity. Near to this sculpture is the harpa building. See both on your walk. Views across the bay lovely especially when the snow on mountain tops

Solfara - Sun Voyager - is a massive steel sculpture by Jon Gunnar Arnason. It resembles a Viking ship, but is in fact a dream boat and ode to the sun. You can see Mount Esja behind it as well as Harpa, the concert hall, and a beautiful sight itself.
