While on our walking tour, we learned about the saga[s] and my husband and I will be listening to these soon!

Directly in front of the Hallgrim Church stands this statue of Leif Eiriksson. It is a gift from the USA. Nice to look at and a great photo motif!

Situated right outside the Lutherian Church, this statue was a gift from the US to the people of Iceland. This is evident from the inscription behind the statue.

Each time I have been to Iceland, I made sure I visited his statue even if I don't go into Hallgrimskirkja Church each time as well. Its just a show of respect I feel obligated to do when I am in Reykjavik.

Leif Eiriksson is said to be the first European to reach in Vinland (which is part of North America; possibly Newfoundland). This one is just a nice statue erected in his memory.
