This is a must to go place, but nothing special. You can go just to say "I'm here" and take a picture. That's it. Anyway, the story behind the sculpure about viking people is quite interesting.

If you have enough free time to spend after shopping in Sæbraut road, you can go and take a nice picture with this sculpture. Best time is sunset.

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.
