Directions to Bridge of Continents

 On the Reykjanes peninsula you can walk from the Eurasian to the North American tectonic plate by walking over a footbridge in Miðlína. You basically walk from Europe to North America and back again. The tectonic plates float 2 cm farther apart every year.

  • Special places we would have missed otherwise ... We have just returned from a 16-day Iceland tour. The travel book was very helpful, we had downloaded and printed. The PDF travel guide helped us to find nice places. Very organized itinerary with a road map which listed all sites. TOP!
