Interesting, worth the stop, lots of plaques explaining this geologic spot.
Easy to reach and plenty of free parking.

Not something you get to do on a normal day or a normal vacation for that matter. A must see while visiting Iceland - seriously how often can you literally stand on two continents. Definitely recommend this attraction.

Visiting the bridge between pantonic plates is amazing, and the fact that they are actually moving around an inch apart each year is stunning! A must see as well as the crack in Þingvellir on your stay in Iceland, this place is only 10 minute from the airport.

A true novelty... To walk from North America to Europe on land. I think it is worth the stop. Where else can you do this?

We had few hours to burn and the Bridge was close enough to include it in our day. It is very short stop (10-15 minutes), and not nearly as exciting as Thingvellir park, where you can see the tectonic plates in much bigger scale. Still, way better than sitting in one place, especially that you have few minor viewpoints on the road.
