Viking Skeleton Ship Covered In Snow
Our last morning in Reykjavik, fresh snow covering the ground, we walked the easy walk down to the shore and saw that this statue of a skeleton Viking ship had a whole new sense of drama from what it had the day before, thanks to a powdery blanket of snow. Called the "Sun Voyager," the metal statue was made by artist Jon Gunnar Arnason and is a smaller version of the boats the Vikings used in their conquest of much of the Northern Hemisphere. It's a quick walk from anywhere in downtown Reykjavik to see the statue, and it's best to visit in the morning or evening when (if you're lucky) the sun bathes it in a serene pink alpenglow.
