Sun Voyager Sculpture - Review

Facing the splendid mount Esja is this landmark as designed and created by Jon Gunnar Arnason. This sleek structure resembles a Viking ship and was made in honour of the Viking voyages thereby was named ‘Solfar’ or Sun Voyager.

It sits amidst the vast Atlantic ocean and has happily made to almost every other postcard from Iceland! The spot is ideal for a jog a stroll or to just sit and see the sun set. It also makes to the ut-most romantic spots in Iceland with the gleaming water of the ocean and beautiful snow-capped mountains at the back–a perfect sight for that selfie!

Sun Voyager Sculpture, Reykjavik Reviews

  • Really beautiful sculpture. The day was gray, so I'd love to see it with a prettier sky, but would recommend you go no matter what the day is like.

  • I did a 2 hours morning walk (7.30am , still dark on 23December 2017, before I left Iceland after a four days brief visit on packaged holidays) around the Coast, Harpa and old jetty The Sun Voyager stands out despite the lack of sunlight! It’s a fine piece of creation to tell the story of Iceland. There is also another interesting piece of rock work close by that looks like two bears from certain angle. I hope someone can shade some light as it was still dark. There are some other pieces of work as I walked along. To me, it is always refreshing wherever there is sea water!

  • Sólfarið, translated into English as 'The Sun Voyager' is a massive, stainless-steel sculpture of a boat by Jón Gunnar Árnason, set on granite beside the sea, (Sæbraut). Sun Voyager is 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. It displays a particular dominance on the sæbraut, and is a main feature on the walkway, which also encompasses some of the most stunning views of Iceland beyond the Reykjavik peninsula.

  • The Sun Voyager; A very beautiful sculpture located at Sæbraut. Sometimes is over populated by tourist and this may cause annoyance if you are considering to take a photo but you may get unforgettable sunset view if you are lucky during your visits. Thanks to Jón Gunnar

  • Very little cool spot in Reykjavik. This place has got an incredible backdrop which compliments this fascinating sculpture
