Wander down to the harbor to see Sun Voyager, a massive sculpture of a dreamboat. Designed by Jon Gunnar Arnason in 1990, the stainless steel artwork resembles a Viking ship and is dedicated to the sun. The sculpture is close to shore and offers a view of Mount Esja across the harbor. More art installations dot the shore if you continue to walk along the water, but this sculpture is the highlight. Our Reykjavik journey planner makes visiting Sun Voyager and other Reykjavik attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

It was a cool experience to finally see this in person. Unfortunately, I had limited time in Reykjavik itself so I only had the chance to see it at night instead of glorious daylight. However, I did get lucky with the full moon! There's not really more to it and the city is full of other things to do, but neat if you happen to be nearby.
Amazing sculpture and an amazing background. Be careful not to slip, the floor around the sculpture is very slick even with snow boots. It is breathtaking and a mandatory stop if you visit Iceland
