The Bridge between continents is a small footbridge over a major fissure which provides clear evidence of the presence of a diverging plate margin. The bridge was built as a symbol for the connection between Eurasian and North America tectonic...more

Google maps had not been updated with the recent construction for the turn near the airport. They moved the road so we missed the turn and had to make a u-turn. It is now at a roundabout.
Once we found the road, it took 10...More
Super interesting geological formation. You can actually see where the two tectonic plates are pulling apart. There are also several signs that explain the local geographic area. Great place to take kids to teach them about our world.
I wanted to visit the Bridge Between Continents directly from the airport on our way to the Blue Lagoon, but our flight was late by 3 hours. So, we went after the Blue Lagoon. It was supersuper windy, so windy that it struck us as...More
The black sand, a beautiful view, and a novel area (where the tectonic plates meet) - it was worth a short stop. After arriving at KEF, we took the leisurely route to the Blue Lagoon. This was our first stop. My kids enjoyed climbing down...More
Actually from the Eurasian plate to the North American plate but the little footbridge named after Leifur heppni , Leif the Lucky the first European to step onto American soil is a suitable reminder to visitors from the US that it wasn’t Columbus Nice little...More
Our third visit to Iceland and I am very glad I took the time to find this gem of a place on the Reykjanes Penninsula. You need to keep your eyes open for the sign and the bridge up on the left as you travel...More
My wife and I went to this site in the summer. You could walk up on the bridge or under the bridge and stand on both continents at the same time. What's kind of curious is that tour groups are taken to the other place...More
If you are driving around the Reykjanes Peninsula area, you will come across this place.
It is worth stopping and having a look around.
The fissure is famous for having photos taking near the bridge with arms up looking like you are holding the bridge...More
We found this very interesting and well worth the trip but a little difficult to find. We were about to leave when turning a curve— there it was. Was very interesting to walk across a gap between the North American and European plates.
Here you will find a fissure with a bridge over it. One side is N America and the other is Europe, thanks to the forces under the tectonic plates. People posed for photos while standing in the fissure as if they are holding up the...More
