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.

Easy to find and surreal experience! Parking area and signage that explains which side you are on as well as where the two continents meet when you are crossing over the walking bridge. Be sure to go underneath in the sandy fissure for photos also!...More

We had a hired car and we drove around the Reykjanes peninsular, from Grindavik going west, following the coast highway. The drive takes you through the Geo Park area west of Gindavik, and I believe that the Blue Lagoon falls into that park area which...More

Not one of the best sights you'll ever see but pretty cool to say you've walked from America to Europe. Perfect if you have a car and your on the way back to airport to drop it off (15min away)

It is cool to see and free. Finding it was easy, and parking is free also. It is close to the Blue Lagoon so we saw it on our way there.

Interesting place to visit and consider the force of the planet, visualised by this bridge dividing two continental shelves. Can be freezingly cold if windy ;-). One can make a nice picture 'holding' the bridge ...
