Sun Voyager Sculpture, Reykjavik Reviews - Write a Review

  • It is just a work of art. I think it is beautiful, but not necessarily a reason to visit Iceland. It looks out over the bay and is inspired on a viking boat. It is nice to walk by when strolling along the boulevard.

  • Simple yet elegant. Great place to stop with a coffee and take in the view and sounds of the waves. Always a few people around there with cameras. Very fine piece of art

  • Interesting statue right on the water, complimented by the gorgeous mountain scenery behind it. This area is usually packed, so go early or late if you want to get some photos free of other people. (Or wait patiently while everyone else takes photos)

  • An interesting sculpture, but not nearly as interesting as the other sights to be seen in Reykjavik. Worth a quick stop, but won't take more than 10 minutes of your time.

  • Good to stop and look at, we were heading for the concert hall and stumbled across this on our way. Seating to take a break and good views of the harbour.
