The Reykjanes Peninsula is an amazing geographical area. Positioned on the middle of the Atlantic ridge, making it the middle between the Eurasian plate and North-American plate which are drifting a part an inch every year. On the ridge there has been built a bridge called "Bridge between two Continents" and is 15-20 meters long where you can walk between North America and Europe in few seconds. The ridge is set in lava covered landscape.

The Reykjanes is the only place in the world where the mid-atlantic ridge can be seen above sea level. On the Reykjanes peninsula you will experience lunar like landscape, tuff mountains and unique geothermal area.
