The Bridge between two continents at Sandvík is a small footbridge over a major fissure which provides clear evidence of the presence of a diverging plate margin. The bridge was built as a symbol for the connection between Eurasian and North America tectonic plates.

Fun and interesting stop. Take time to hike over the bridge and into the gulley that seperates the two continents. On the road to/from airport and Blue Lagoon.

This would be a good stop for people who don't have the time to make the Golden Circle tour, It is a nice way to see the symbolic rift.

Stumbled across this by accident killing some time south of the airport before checking in to accommodation. Free parking. Fascinating to be on the plate border.

Really enjoyed our visit. We took our time walking around, about 2 hours. It was a light rainy day but did not stop us

You hear about such places but until you have stood there, its importance cannot be felt. We were mesmerized!

It is on 425, about 10 minutes from the airport. Its a couple miles before the Reykjanes Lighthouse coming from the airport. There is no large landmark. Look for the "points of interest" sign. (The one that sorta looks... More
