“Great Sculpture”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

Wonderful sculpture. Would be wonderful to see at sunset if you have the opportunity. Visit the Music/Cultural centre and take a walk along the waterfront.

“Superb from so many angles”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

Public sculptures can be difficult to appreciate and can date easily. This sculpture provided pleasure whether we walked or bussed by, at sunrise and in the evening twilight.It is a significant art work.

“Beautiful sculpture”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

This is great for a photo-op. Free and anyone can go see it. Stands next to the water. We learned it's actually not supposed to be a viking ship, but rather a dream boat, symbolizing hope and light.

A must stop on your tour of Reykjavik. Combining modern art with the form of Viking ship it is beautiful. Highly recommended.

“Solfar.... so good!”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

The Solfar (Sun Voyager) sculpture is located about a 5 - 10 minute walk from Hallgrimskirkja. The sculpture has been placed in a beautiful setting on the waterfront. The area that the Sun Voyager is found has a very nice walking trail that parallels the ocean. The sculpture reminds me of past times when the Vikings traveled in their boats exploring and discovering unknown lands. When the weather cooperates, you can look across the water beyond Solfar to see Esja and the surrounding mountains.
