This sculpture is a must see, along with the seafront in general. Here you'll get to see out across the water and the mountains in the distance. We were even treated to a rainbow! As expected there were lots of tourists. Most were respectful of...More

Definitely pay a visit to this sculpture if you have time. It is worth seeing, but even more the view on the water is incredible. Go at different times of the day for different lighting.

A little off the beaten track, this beautiful sculpture requires a special effort, and it is worth it. This is a spectacular piece, especially when the sun is glinting on it. But it is very popular, so getting nice pictures without dozens of other people...More

That´s not true. In December in Reykjavik you have at least 4 hours of light. You can go to the page timeanddate, and check there the sunrises and the sunsets. Hope it help you.
