The Bridge Between Continents is a symbolic footbridge located on Iceland’s Reykjanes Peninsula. Spanning the fissure between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates, the bridge offers a tangible representation of the geological forces shaping Iceland.
Visitors can walk across this short bridge and stand with one foot on each tectonic plate, marveling at the visible evidence of the Earth’s dynamic processes. This simple yet powerful structure serves as a reminder of Iceland’s position atop the Mid-Atlantic Ridge and the ongoing tectonic activity that defines the island’s landscapes. It’s a popular stop for tourists seeking to experience firsthand the dramatic geological features that make Iceland so unique.
Hike to an erupting volcano in Geldingadalir valley, visit the Bridge Between Continents, see the majestic Reykjanesviti Lighthouse, witness the beauty of Lake Kleifarvatn, and admire Gunnuhver Hot Springs on this once in a lifetime tour from Reykjavík.
