The only place that I am aware of where the two continental plates are above sea level. About a 40 minute drive from Reykjavik along an excellent road. Access is free. Wear warm clothing as the breeze can get up. Easy walking access from the...More

Easy to find and surreal experience! Parking area and signage that explains which side you are on as well as where the two continents meet when you are crossing over the walking bridge. Be sure to go underneath in the sandy fissure for photos also!...More

We really enjoyed our stop here. It was quite busy with tourists stopping from coach trips. We drove their in a hired car, which was good, as we easily found it and managed to get parked in the provided car park. It was an easy...More

We had a hired car and we drove around the Reykjanes peninsular, from Grindavik going west, following the coast highway. The drive takes you through the Geo Park area west of Gindavik, and I believe that the Blue Lagoon falls into that park area which...More

I didn't think I would love this as much as I did. It is surreal to be standing on a bridge between two continents! Highly recommend a visit! We hired a car and toured the main spots ourselves and travelled to blue lagoon after visiting...More

Not one of the best sights you'll ever see but pretty cool to say you've walked from America to Europe. Perfect if you have a car and your on the way back to airport to drop it off (15min away)

It is cool to see and free. Finding it was easy, and parking is free also. It is close to the Blue Lagoon so we saw it on our way there.

Interesting place to visit and consider the force of the planet, visualised by this bridge dividing two continental shelves. Can be freezingly cold if windy ;-). One can make a nice picture 'holding' the bridge ...

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
