  • Without knowing too much about this monument, it was a stark contrast to see hunks of metal jutting from rocks in a desolate area.  more »
  • The disfigured metal structures of the bridge demonstrate the terrible power of nature. The bridge was demolished by a glacier in 1996. Slowly but surely. Inch by inch. Creepy, but very informative...  more »

  • Quick little stop to understand what happened at the bridge in the mid 1990's. Kind of strange to appear in the middle of nowhere in southern Iceland.
  • Nice place to stop and streatch your legs on route 1. Also a really cool piece of a bridge that got washed away and information signs about the event.
