Location: waterfront north of Reykjavik’s City Center, Iceland;

Sculpture by Jón Gunnar Árnason, steel.

“Sólfar is a massive steel creation made to resemble a Viking ship…
Standing by this sculpture during sunset, at any time of the year, is an unforgettable moment. It is probably the most photographed sculpture in Reykjavik.” —Geir Gudmundsson

  1. Wow! *blush* I dunno what to say… Takk fyrir! Thank you!

    The Sun Voyager might look cold coz it’s made of steel but it possesses a magnetic presence that makes one feel calm and serene. Geir describes the experience being unforgettable, I say it’s magical. 🙂
