If you like to take a walk while visiting a city, we recommend the walking tour from the Reykjavík City Center to the enjoyable artwork Þúfa. Although built in 2013 the environmental art is fast becoming a landmark in the Reykjavík urban landscape.  To go to Þúfan you walk by the harbor west on to Grandi, where Reykjavík still has a lot of fishing and fish processing activity, and out to a point where the hill was built.

Þúfa in Icelandic actually means a very tiny knoll, but here it is a hill.  It is an 8 meter high hill and 26 meters in diameter.

His compositions are lyrical, poetic and ethereal; they are touching the untouchable like the light and the wind through philosophical ponderings; they are a perfect picture of things that don't exist. Through his compositions, Hreinn Friðfinnsson explores the everyday human experience and transcends the mundane materials from which they are made to evoke strong emotions in the viewer. His works have been exhibited all over the world.
