About Bridge America - Europe, Reykjavik

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

  • The simple fact of standing above 2 plates is what makes this place really cool. Its not visually spectacular though other than being amongst the dramatic Icelandic landscape

  • 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!

  • Mainly a visit to be able to say that you've stood on both tectonic plates and also in between them. This site is very well cared for, the path is well made and the bridge is very artistic in a minimalist way. The landscape around is picturesque as well as the location of the bridge lending itself to some great sights and shots.

  • A really cool sight that we almost missed in Iceland! It wasn't crowded at all! Definitely worth the stop.

  • Not advertised nearly as well as the places on the golden circle for example but then this is free so no surprise there then. Really interesting visit where you can walk across and between the two cliff faces on eithe side of the crack which is opening up between the North American tectonic plate and the Eurasian plate. Deep sand dunes made from Black lava sand have filled in some of the crevice so it is possible to get down into the base of the crevice and get a close look at the rock for.ations on either side. Don't think there is anywhere else like it anywhere, but loved being able to see it close up. Great place. :-)
