In Reykjavik: Street Art

In Reykjavik: Street Art

Reykjavik has some amazing street art and sculptures scattered all round the city. I definitely recommend you walk around and try and spot these incredible pieces. All you have to do is keep walking, go down small streets and you are sure to find beautiful pieces all across the city.PhoebeGill150814531I love these birds they reminded me of the guinea fowl I saw in South Africa.PhoebeGill150112150

I love that down small streets you can find wonderfully creative pieces.PhoebeGill150813517

I don’t want to show too much because it’s a fun game wandering around finding them. Reykjavik is beautiful and with the addition of street art it makes it even more wonderful!

In Reykjavik: Sun Voyager

In Reykjavik: Sun Voyager

The Sólfar (Sun Voyager) sculpture is something I completely recommend, in Winter the light is just gorgeous, yellow and pink skies cause this whole scene to become the most beautiful spectacle. PhoebeGill150109094

The sculpture was made by Jón Gunnar Árnason, an Icelandic artist. It is a representation of a dream boat and is an ode to the sun. It tries to create hope, dreams, progress and freedom. PhoebeGill150109095There will be lots of people there trying to get their shots, so mindful when someone is taking a picture and try not to ruin it by hogging the sculpture for a long time.

The view of Mount Esja is just breathtaking and with the city behind you it is beautiful. I urge you to go at sunrise or sunset and enjoy!

Happy Travels!
