I think i would be okay if i didnt get to see this. It's smaller than I thought. If you were visiting the Harpa (a must), then maybe another 5-7 minute walk along the waterfront wouldnt be too bad. I saw it in the morning...More

It is worth strolling by the waterfront to enjoy this lovely piece of public art. There will always be someone there, night or day, taking pictures. And why not: this is one of the most photogenic sculptures anywhere. Beautiful and serene.

Fun exhibit to take photos. We enjoyed walks on the beautiful harbor and taking pictures of Solfar during the different times of day.

Very beautiful with great view of the sea. Better to go closing to night with less people. There is a great shore line walking trail here so it's is great walk along to see this.

If you wake up early and catch the sunrise here, wow. It will be an amazing picture. Great place and close to downtown to our apartment.

That´s not true. In December in Reykjavik you have at least 4 hours of light. You can go to the page timeanddate, and check there the sunrises and the sunsets. Hope it help you.
