The Sun Voyager, Reykjavik

The Sun Voyager or Sólfar is an iconic sculpture facing Mount Esja on the North Atlantic shore in Reykjavik.

The Sun Voyager or Sólfar is an iconic sculpture facing Mount Esja on the North Atlantic shore in Reykjavik. Created by Jón Gunnar Árnason in 1987-'90, the stainless steel sculpture is located on a circular stone platform on a headland (Jónsnes or Jón’s Peninsula) off Sæbraut road. Vaguely resembling a Viking ship, the 18 metre long structure is believed to represent a dreamboat, an ode to the sun symbolizing light, hope, freedom and magic, containing the promise of undiscovered territory.
