Bridge Between Continents, Reykjavik
(3.7/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • As we were in the area on this day we decided to take a look. It was very interesting and different to anything we'd seen before, so glad we took a walk around there. 
  • A symbolic place to do takes 20 minutes and voila... Go and close the eyes to dream

  • Interesting walk. Very easy to do...but use bathrooms at start of walk as there are pay toilets at the end
