This place is just what you see in the picture. It's a metal structure that looks like a hollowed out boat. Maybe there is some other meaning but it didn't look very impressive to me.

We enjoyed checking this out but it isn't monumental. Check it out if you are in the area. It is cool.

If you are out and about in Reykjavik and walk down to the water this is a good place to go. You can get some pictures. On a clear day the mountains across the water are dramatic.

We visited the sculpture on a Monday morning and we had the sculpture to ourselves. Only problem was the weather. We came back on a sunnier day and the view was 90% better.

There is a great view of the mountains north of the city. My wife and I got some really good HDR shots of the sunrise.

This sculpture is along the water walkway. You can take amazing photos with this viking ship sculpture.

This artist view of a viking long boat is a must. It is on the main road up from Harpa and makes a great picture at any time of the day. A picture is worth a thousand words - this one is!

I'll give a very honest and unbiased review here with all things considered. Please see my many TripAdvisor reviews for good reads on my travel experiences! https://www.tripadvisor.com/members/Erin_leigh79 Hubby and I stopped by on a rather long walk back from the west side of the city...More

Take a photo against the backdrop of the city and waterline. Maybe rest a while on the seats around it and move on.

Lovely sculpture over looking the sea. If you're exploring Reykjavik this is easily found and great for a few pictures.

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Has anyone found a small replica of the Solfar sculpture that one can put on a table, and can tell me where to get it? I would love to find such a thing to put in my house, as a reminder of magical Iceland?

Hi Noa, You can buy the replica in Reykjavík Art Museum, Kjarvalsstaðir, Ásmundarsafn, Gallery Bakarí on Skólavörðustígur and in the flowershop Upplifun in Harpa by the harbour. Kind regards, Ólöf Anna
