Bridge Between Continents, Reykjavik

3.7
#6 of 21 in Sightseeing in Reykjavik
Landmark Tourist Spot
Cross the rift supposedly separating Europe and North America by walking over Bridge Between Continents. A thin, steel deck in the middle of nowhere lies across the point where two tectonic plates are diverging. "Welcome to America" and "Welcome to Europe" signs greet you as you cross. The gorge below the bridge is not very deep or dangerous, so you can easily walk through and pass under the bridge. Notice the engraved padlocks on the fence, which symbolize the love of couples who visited the bridge.

  • Nice place, usefull information about the Mid Atlantic Ridge , you can walk in the area with beautifull vieuws over a intriguing landscape.  more »
  • You have to do this because it has a geological significance but there is not much to look at. It's conveniently located between the airport and the blue lagoon so easy to get to.  more »

  • Known as Miðlína, this is a tourist-spot through and through and usually the sort of thing I abhor, but I can't help but really love it. It's a great destination on a first-day kick-off of a tour around the Reykjanes Peninsula, and a early hint at the sort of rift to be seen at Þingvellir.
  • Hydro-nature, wonderful feeling be one foot in America and one in Europe. I definitely recommend!

Where to stay in Reykjavik

In this highly walkable capital, many of Reykjavik's hotels and guesthouses offer close proximity to the city's popular attractions, bars, and restaurants. The waterfront offers an exciting dose of activity. Although Reykjavik provides plenty of accommodations to its flocks of visitors, there is a dearth of budget options in the city. Price-conscious visitors should consider staying in a hostel, with both private and dorm rooms available, or a nearby campsite. Although the campground is not as centrally located as some hotels, guests are better positioned to take advantage of the natural surroundings.
