This is a strange feeling, what should be a steel structure dwarfed by the surrounding bay with its backdrop of mountains appears to grow as you approach it. A really engaging piece of sculpture that captures the essence of Iceland and its origins.

It's a beautiful piece of art, there is also a description written that was so beautiful. It is worth the visit, near the city center.

A really nice walk along the harbour to see this. It was only a 20 min walk from our hotel but would reccomend the walk anyway if you weren't close by

Solfar is located in a wonderful spot, in addition to being a beautiful sculpture. The work is pure, and though it is modern, one can envision Vikings on this thing. Use your imagination and enjoy. The walk along the riverfront is totally worth the visit...More

I knew there wasn’t much in the city to do so the last day we toured the city... on feet... walked tk the church then downhill to this sculpture. Beautiful scenery on the coast.

The sculpture itself is quite nice looking. Taking a photo with it and the landscape at the back is just amazing. Along the way you can enjoy very nice scenery too.

This was our first stop after checking into our hotel late at night. The sky was fairly clear so we thought it worth the walk to the Sea Voyager to see if there was any chance of seeing the Northern Lights as this amazing sculpture...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.
