Sˇlfari - The Sun Voyager, ReykjavÝk: 18 reviews and 54 photos
ReykjavÝk is surrounded by sea and we have many beautiful waterfronts.
The northern waterfront is a popular place for jogging and strolling. From there you have a great view of Esjan, which is ReykjavÝk's most known mountain, and other mountains and on sunny days you can see the town Akranes glistening in the sun.
On the waterfront, a 5 minutes' walk from LŠkjartorg-square, The Sun Voyager sculpture (Sˇlfar) is located. It is a big Vikingship steel-sculpture by Jˇn Gunnar ┴rnason (1931-1989) and a reminder of our history and heritage when the first Viking settlers came sailing to Iceland. On the waterfront you can watch the breathtaking sunsets, and on the solstice it is a perfect place to watch the sun touch the horizon and rise again.
There is a guided tour, which stops at the Sun Voyager.
Address: On SŠbraut, 101 ReykjavÝk
Directions: A 5 minutes' walk from LŠkjartorg-square in the city-center east of Sk˙lagata and SŠbraut.
