Very nice place to see and let the kids climb over. There's comfortable parking right there with the car and it's nice to just sit on the rocks and watch the water and beautiful views. Amazing views!
Cool sculpture on the harbor. I walked here on a route through the city one day. It's a striking landmark that makes a nice shot for your 'Trip to Iceland' gallery. There's a walking path and a bike path nearby. There are steps you can sit on and enjoy views of the harbor from as well.
This sculpture is really unique and will lead you to a scenic view of the waterway. This gains a lot of tourist attention, so my advice is to 1) pick an hour to visit that will give you the best backdrop, like maybe sunset or sunrise and 2) be patient to get your individual photo taken with it. We were in Reykjavík in early October and got to the sculpture sometime around 5:00 PM. There were about 50 people there, including a tour group of about 15-20 people who were taking multiple individual photos, so it took forever to get just one photo without strangers in it, and I had to be quick about it. Still, a very cool spot to visit.
The sculpture found along the marvelous seaside of Reykjavik. It is very popular with tourists and a tourist photo spot. It is a gleaming metal sculpture of boat. It is actually intended to depict a dream boat but to most tourists, it is seen as a viking ship. Definitely one photostop if you are visiting Reykjavik, Iceland.
I went early on the morning and it was beautiful. The water was calm and the light was just right. The sculpture is unique and quite simply beautiful. It leaves you to your imagination, but you also know what it is. It was a perfect destination for a morning run. And you get a nice view of Mount Esj.
