It's a good statue. But it sits on hill with a great view and is good for a few photos. Good spot to sit and relax.

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.

The statue is located on the top of a small hill (which some less able people may struggle to climb). From the top you can see a lovely view view of the concert hall, the harbour, part of the city centre, and hills in the...More
