A beautiful sculpture in a well chosen spot. Walk along the waterfront from yhe tourist centre and stop to enjoy. Keep going along until after the petrol station and walk inland into the Corporate CBD. Then work your way back into the main tourist area.

Sun Voyager is created for watching to the Athlantic ocean. Peace. Harmony. You forget about your problems and dream about something exiting... I always remind this amazing and strange sculpture. I hope, we'll meet each other.

Just looking over this sculpture to the backdrop of the water and mountains is worth the short trek off the main shopping area. Sit on the seats provided and gaze out over the majestic beauty of this scenery.

That´s not true. In December in Reykjavik you have at least 4 hours of light. You can go to the page timeanddate, and check there the sunrises and the sunsets. Hope it help you.
