Iceland – Between the Continents

Iceland is one of the most geologically interesting places on earth. Because of it’s location on the mid-Atlantic range, the geothermal activity is rampant. This is why there are so many volcanoes, lava fields and hot springs throughout the country.

One place you can see the continental divide for yourself in the Reykjanes Peninsula. (It’s not too far from the Blue Lagoon!) There is even a bridge between the North American and Eurasian Tectonic plates.

This is a cool little spot as you’re driving throughout the island. It’s not too far from Reykjavik, so it makes a nice little stop. It wasn’t very busy while we were there either. There was maybe 5 or 6 other people. It’s worth it for the photo of your travel partner on a different continent than you!
