  • Nice statue that is easy to find in Reykjavik. It is not easy to get there by myself in a wheelchair because of the steep hill up, but it stands on a fancy place in Reykjavik.

  • Five stars because on my last night in Iceland, I stood alongside the statue of Ingolfur Arnarsson as the Northern Lights flowed over the city from the west. This is a relatively dark place in the midst of all the lights in Central Reykjavik, so if the Aurora are out at night, this could be a good location to catch them.
  • Here's what you need to know: - This long grassy hill is a perfect place to sit, lay, chat and catch the incredible sunsets of Reykjavik - During the day the grass if often full of travelers, tourists, couples and folks of all kinds lounging, lunching and laying - You should get a snack, take a seat, and take it all in
  • Not a park and not a square, but it has the statue of Ingólfur Arnarsson who found Iceland after sailing from Norway. There are benches around the statue and it gives a nice view over the harbor. On the independence day the 17th of June and on culture night in august, this comes a popular place to sit on because of outdoor concerts in the evening.
  • Nice spot to relax and strike up a conversation with local Icelanders.
  • This would be a great place to visit in summer. Unfortunately for us it was raining, but it was still nice.
