This is THE landmark of Reykjavik (along with the church). We visited it once early in the morning and once late at night (well, you know what I mean - 11pm - and it was still broad daylight) so the lighting was completely different. It is cleancut and simple in form. A good photo opportunity though you may have to wait for tourists acting the fool in front of it to clear away.

I was anxious to see this and I was so glad I did. Beautiful sculpture within walking distance of our Center Hotel. So nice to sit down and watch the boats. Depending on the lighting, the sculpture took on different looks. Great photo op, too.

Copenhagen has the little mermaid statue.
Reykjavik has the Sun Voyager.
And Reykjavik wins. Bigtime!
This sculpture is literally breathtaking - combining modernism and myth alike with its Viking boat shape.
The sculpture is made of stainless still, which is a good thing, as the elements by the waterfront are truly a challenge for it.
Numerous photo-ops of the sculpture and the beautiful bay and mountains in the back.
Don't miss this one while in Reykjavik. It's really breathtaking.

Inspired and inspring. One of several sculptures along the shore road, it remains one of my favorite spots in all of Reykjavik. Simple, gorgeous, and restful.

The amusing thing is watching everyone taking photos. I think you rather have to get to it by car otherwise you are crossing a highway to get to this rather bleak promenade along the bay.
