“Scorpion or ship's skeleton...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014

However your imagination works as you walk around this beautiful sculpture, the sun plays on the metal and shadows and contrasts to the watery background. Definitely get out and walk!

“Like a Viking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

Fab piece of sculpture evocative of Vikings, exploration and sagas. Massive depiction of a Viking long ship, seems to change shape and colour with the light and time of day. Hard to drag yourself away.

“Great Photo Op”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2014

This modern sculpture was a short walk from our hotel and worth it. Very dramatic with the snow covered mountains in the background. We visited in January so there were not a lot of tourists or coaches. Very impressive in the early morning light - ok 11am is early morning light in the winter!

“Great spot for photos”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014

It's worth a walk over to this iconic piece of art...great views from here and the stylized Viking ship evokes thoughts of the brave souls who made the voyages here. We caught it on a day with sun breaking through ominous storm clouds. Beautiful.

“Got a peaceful and tranquil feeling there”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

We just visited the Sun Voyager last week at noon. The sculpture itself was located in the coast, with impressive scenery surrounded - an iceberg at another side of the sea, the relatively populous city center, and the lonely sculpture. However, we were somewhat unbearable even at noon! The temperature was okay (0-1 degree) but the place was near the sea that made it so windy.
