Great location, great views of the waterfront but windy so can be very chilly! You can get the Cityhopper bus which will drop you off there. Smaller than you might expect but a great photo opportunity.

This is a pretty cool sculpture that I stopped at while walking along the water. It is quite an attraction as many people where taking photos the day that I stopped.

Beautiful abstract Viking ship, with beautiful scenery in the background for photos. Worth a stop if walking along the waterfront.

That´s not true. In December in Reykjavik you have at least 4 hours of light. You can go to the page timeanddate, and check there the sunrises and the sunsets. Hope it help you.
