Bridge Between Continents, Reykjavik

(3.7/5 based on 600+ 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.

  • I don't know if it's worth the trip, but as we zoned a little in the peninsula of Reyjane, we have made a stop. The idea is nice, but it is far-fetched. Given the geography/geology of the Iceland, no, we are not a side on the American plate and the other side on the European plate.

  • Great idea: transfer bridge between two rocky hills and called his intercontinental! Tourists hit the shaft, although, in principle, nothing special here. But understanding that are between the two continental boards-American and Eurasian-PIN. Good thing there are plaques with maps, explain the situation. I liked and photo with the boy, allegedly holding the bridge on their hands. And I want to say: ' Yes! I'm here! "
