It was a nice sculpture to see, with a beautiful view of the mountain in the background.
I don’t really see the history or the point of it being built but you might as well look at it if you visit Reykjavik.

We decided to go see it at 11:30pm one night as it was such inviting weather. We were not the only people who had ventured out to sit by the statue and gaze at the harbor for a few hours in hope of spotting the Northern Lights. We were not fortunate to see it, but we still wanted to see the statue up close.

Nice to go and see there was a few people there but if you are staying in Reykjavík nice to have a walk as views are beautiful

This sculpture truly captures the feel of the history of Iceland. Made of stainless steel and sitting directly on the waterfront, this is a popular attraction.

I can see, with the right weather, Solfar providing beautiful pictures. Despite the cold gloomy overcast skies we had, I still got great shots and loved just hanging out here a bit.

Not sure what to really say about this one. It was near where we were so we walked to it, mostly killing time before we headed to the airport. It's there, you will go by it, so stop and take a picture.

Beautiful ship sculpture on the harbor in Reykjavík. If you are visiting the city of Reykjavík, stop by and check it out. Populist with tourists taking pictures as there is an amazing view of the snow capped mountains behind it.

We wandered down to the waterfront to try to catch the northern lights, and were delighted to find lots of other folks doing the same thing, and congregating at this cool sculpture. It seemed like the perfect setting - we couldn’t see details of the sculpture but the structure provided a terrific viewing spot.

Very atmospheric. We walked passed this sculpture a few times and each time, due to changing weather / light, the view was different. Stunning.

Sun Voyager is a sculpture by Jón Gunnar Árnason, located next to the Sæbraut road in Reykjavík, Iceland close to the Harpa Music Hall an easy stroll away on Reykjavik's scenic waterfront.
Described as a dreamboat, or an ode to the sun. The artist intended it to convey the promise of undiscovered territory, a dream of hope, progress and freedom.
