It's a statue on a hill in a small park near the harbor. It's a nice enough statue. And if walking in he main area of town you will see it a lot. It's ok.

This statue was in a small park in a pretty area of Reykjavik and apparently depicts the history of Iceland. Definitely worth a look at the statue and the area around.

On a sunny afternoon it is nice to visit the park in which this statue dominates a small hill at the bottom of Laugavegur. Dedicated to the original Icelandic settlers it is worth a photo, and the views from the hill are very nice.

Most likely you'll bump into this statue as it's at the end of Laugavegur St. It's pretty detailed and a great picture to add to your photos when travelling through Reykjavik :)

This statue is dedicated to the first settlers of Iceland in A.D. 876. Statue looks good and is near to park area. Worth a 10 minute look and maybe a photo.

What a marvellous sculpture! If you like photography you must come here and photograph this sculpture. It is a place to relax for 30 minutes. You can walk here from the Harpa. There is a little park where the kids can play for a while.

A bit of a trek but worth it for the view of the marina and the Harpa. Little bit of history behind the location available to the left too.

This is one of those attractions that you weren't intending to see and to be honest I was attracted as much to see what the views were like as I was to see the statue at the centre of such itself. It's OK - it's...More

We come across this statue while having a wonder round :) there's a little plaque on the side explaining about the meaning of it. But from up here there's lovely views across the town and the harbour.
