It is interesting to see his statue after having read about him and his exploits so many years ago. What else can I say about a statue? It is something to look at when one visits a different country.

A lovely statue. It has an optimal placement in front of the church and you can get some very nice shots. . Not exactly the thing you would want to travel for. but if you are in the area you should see it.

Nice statue to commemorate Leif Eriksen’s achievements in discovering North America around 1000AD. It’s infrint of the iconic Hallsgrim Church.

I wouldn't call this a must-see but if you are near the area, it's a short stop to take a look at this impressive statue. A good photo op too.

Erik's wayward son, Leif, has a nice statue out in front of Hallgrímskirkja. I wouldn't visit just for the statue but you get both with a visit to the church.
