The Sculpture and Shore Walk is a popular walking path in Reykjavík. If you need to find something to do while in the city this walk is a splendid way to spend a couple of hours enjoying the scenery, looking sculptures and take a refreshing walk by the ocean. It is a fascinating walk at any time, both during the day and also in the evening any time of the year. The walk is not too long, and there are many stops along the way.  And most of the time the view over the fjord Kollafjörður with its islands and the mountain Esja in the background is stunning.
