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 plates.

Love visiting here as Iceland is between two tectonic plates of EuroAsia and North America. The plates are getting wider apart from each other making the Atlantic Ocean larger. Great walk learning about this. You walk the bridge from the EuroAsia side to the North American.

The only other place in Iceland to see the tectonic plates is in Thingvellir, where they are more impressive. However, this is a nice stop if you are driving around Reykjanes, and Thingvellir doesn't have a bridge! There is also a sign indicating the two continents, so you can pose for a photo. Tour buses stop here, so try to avoid the mass of tourists running for pictures.

The pathway leading up to the bridge is adorable. I didn't realize this when I wanted to visit the bridge, but this is a location for love. Couples come here to leave a padlock with their initial etched into it. Very sweet. The weather was cold rain, but it didn't hinder our excitement. The bridge is very simple, there is nothing else around. It's a fun idea and is what you make of the experience.

Iceland is the only place in the world that you can walk between two tectonic plates (there are a few other places in the country that you can do this as well). This is a pretty cool spot, and the bridge connecting both of the plates is a pretty neat concept. Worth going if you have some time in the area.

My husband and I stopped here after grabbing our rental car. Our flight arrived at 6am so we had some time to kill before going to our hotel. It means we got there at around 8am which is before the sun rises in Iceland. It was still cool to walk across the bridge and read some of the signs. It would have been even better if we could have seen more, but it was still worth the stop.

In the Reykjanes peninsula, south of Keflavik airport, west of Grindavik, is this worthwhile attraction that puts into perspective the fissure of 2 tectonic plates (north American and European). This location is fairly remote, so best to build into an itenerary from landing/departing at Keflavik, or a visit to the Blue Lagoon.

Simply a footbridge put between the fissure, to symbolically explain how Iceland represents the separation of the North American and European tectonic plates. Good signage. Cool phot opp. Budget less than 30 minutes here. No facilities here.

Went on a crazy windy, rainy day and had the place to ourselves! Explored around the area, neat hiking spot. The parking is easy to access, no fee to visit. Wish the weather had been nicer, we could have spent more time here!

One big bursted open ground that still moves away about 2,5 cm per year.
You can stand on the European or American continent or inbetween if you can't choose.
It is impressive to see and very nice for a stop along your way.
It is close to the parkinglot so you do not have to walk very far to see it.

It was neat to be able to say we've walked between two continents. Not sure I would go back but it was neat for a one time thing. East walk from parking lot. Bridge is nice. You can walk down between the plates. Sand/rocks are very loose so just be smart and careful.

A really good place to stop on the coastal drive. Educational for the kids and really beautiful too. The black sand and photo opportunities were great. You don’t need long but it’s worth it just to say you’ve been and to cross the bridge.
