There's a lot to see while walking on the shore, including this and a weird grass dome in the distance

This sculpture sits on the edge of Reykjavik, on the bay. From it, you have a wonderful view of both the city and the mountains on the other side of the bay.

Looks great from all angles and changes with the ambient light. There are historical symbols incorporated with the design (although the local we talked to didn’t seem to know this)

Great waterfront area for walking or running. Artwork is right on the water in downtown Reykjavík. An easy walk from most hotels and tourist areas.

This was a cool piece of art to go visit. You can pull up to it and take a picture of it, and get out of your car to get a picture with it.

This is not a Viking ship... just to let you know. Has nothing to do with that. Yeas, it's a nice picture in you photo album that you will never look at again. But this is really nothing. (but a nice sculpture).

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.
