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.

  • This was a really beautiful detour from on our Icelandic excursion. This separation of the plates is much closer than the one up in the Golden Circle which offers some great photo ops. Plus it's significantly less crowded, which makes it possible for some better nature appreciation.

  • Eh. Good stop if you're best the airport but not worth it alone. Take some fun pics. Its not even between the two continents but the people back home won't know that.

  • It's a weird experience, to imagine that you're standing over two different continents (geologically speaking). It's one of those places in Iceland that amazes you not because of the view, but because of what makes you think and reflect about this world

  • 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... Just don't get too excited
