Bridge America - Europe - Review
It’s possible you will never find another attraction like this anywhere else in the world. Did you know that Iceland is located right on the mid-Atlantic ridge, the division line of the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates? At this location you can stand on the exact point of fissure between the two plates. This is also the only place in the world where a continental ridge rises above sea level. A bridge has been built across the fissure. And when you cross from one point of the bridge to the other, you are literally crossing over from Eurasia to North America. Though there is not much else to do here, it’s worth a visit. There probably is not a cooler location to take a selfie in all of Iceland.

Bridge America - Europe, Reykjavik Reviews
If you are passionate in pure #geology here is an amazing and unique place. The middle Atlantic dorsal is here on the surface and you could walk on it! The Earth is expanding h3re 3cm on each year between the two geotectonic plates.
Interesting place to c both the plates come togther
We went just before going to the airport to go home. It was covered in snow and actually quite beautiful. A quick stop but really worth it
A must visit if you land at the airport nearby ;) definitely worth it.
Awesome place, worth the distance! Nature around it is great, visited several months ago during first snow and was just in ave. It is in the middle of nothing so unless you like reeeealy long walks, get a car or someone with a car to get you there. If you get lucky while walking though, you may come across some drivers who offer you a lift too!
