    The steel sculpture Sólfar (Sun Ride) represents a dream trip to the sun on a mystical boat. It lies on the shore path of Reykjavik against the backdrop of the local mountain Esjy and the Atlantic Ocean.
    Due sculpture was created by the artist Jón Gunnar Árnason on the occasion of a bicentenary of the city of Reykjavík.

    The most popular work is definitely Sólfar, a sun ship designed by Jón Gunnar Árnason, where most visitors see a stylized Viking ship.
    Sólfar is one of the most popular photo opportunities in the city because you can hardly get enough of it. Set up on a mirror-polished marble slab (note: very smooth in bad weather!) The ship seems to float on the water.
