Project Description

SUN VOYAGER

There are many beautiful places to stop and admire the scenery along Reykjavík’s coastline, however there is one spot which has an added charm and therefore become especially popular, Sólfari or the ‘Sun Voyager’. This massive shining steel sculpture, resembling a Viking ship was created by Jón Gunnar Árnason and is a dreamboat, an ode to the sun. Intrinsically, it contains within itself the promise of undiscovered territory, a dream of hope, progress and freedom. It faces the majestic Mount Esja, and is a wonderful spot for photo opportunities, whether you are enjoying a midday stroll or taking in the full significance of the artwork during the summer’s midnight sun.
