“Exquisite”

Solfar (Sun Voyager) Sculpture
Ranked #30 of 187 things to do in Reykjavik
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 6 April 2018

So well positioned on the water front, this graceful sculpture is sure to delight all! Evocative of a fairy boat leading out to dream destinations. The sunlight, if captured at the right time, glistens on the metal making it glow.

Definitely worth the short walk from the city centre. Gorgeous, scenic surroundings and was very quite when we went at 9am

This beautiful piece of art I found while walking towards the opera house. It was just sitting there with the mountains behind, asking me to take its photo.

Each time we visit is a different experience all over again. 1st was sunny, then sunset, and snowing! Appreciate the tranquility and serenity just listening to the waves and admiring the view. Stay with Hlemmur Square and walk for ~5 mins!
