We had a rainy first day in Iceland, so we walked from our hotel, down to the concert hall, and across the foreshore to this attractive sculpture
Solfar was the first thing we took a picture of when we arrived in Reykjavik. The backdrop of this sculpture is amazing and we were able to take in our first impressions of Iceland from this point. It was in a very convenient location on our way to the Saturday market and the most famous hot dog stand in Iceland!... More

We visited here around 5pm when it was already fully dark and I was very disappointed that the sculpture was not made more visible with spot lights etc. I have included the 2 photos we took to show how poorly visible the sculpture is at night. All-in-all we were disappointed with all the sights recommended on Tripadvisor. We made a... More
