All reviews long walk crash site cars parked km walk round trip walk car park google maps black sand worth the effort the main road photo opportunity nice walk ring road unique experience taking photos parking area be careful
To get to the plane, you have to walk a couple of kilometres, but since the area is very flat, it is not a difficult endeavour. The plane in itself looks very interesting, though I wonder how long it will take for Icelandic people to...More
Easy walk from the car park along a gravel track which is clearly marked.
I’d personally recommend to come before sunrise and bring a head torch. You can then be there on your own. Which is quite unheard of in 2019 with tourism a hit...More
Make sure you have at least 2+ hours to view this. They have closed the road to reach the beach so it's all walking - we made it about halfway (walking at a quick pace) and then realizing it was going to set us way...More
We followed our GPS and ended up parking in the wrong place. The walk it a little farther md if you don’t cut to the right t the beginning, off the ATV trail, you’ll have to cross a small river to get to the plane....More
Couple of issues with visiting this - firstly google maps will take you to the wrong car park which is 2km east of the correct car park. If like us and the many other cars in this car park you don't realise you are in...More
The abandoned plane is a must see if visiting Iceland, we’d hired a car for our trip (best thing we did). The wreck is a two hour drive from Reykjavík and an hour walk from the car park, all there is around you is baron...More
Although it seems strange, it’s definitely a site not to miss in Iceland. We woke up at sunrise and walked the straight line out on the beach.
Yes it’s long, but it’s worth it and it’s flat so it really isn’t that bad! When we...More
This really is an otherworldly sight to see (and it's a great photo op of course). It's about 4km each way from the parking lot to the plane it it takes around 45 minutes each way depending on how fast you walk. There's really nothing...More
It’s not the end (the DC plane) but the motivation to keep walking as the cold winter wind and slight showers in the early morning walk (8.8 km) to the DC plane.
The car park and trail are well maintained and flat so there’s not...More
This was the best thing we did on our trip to Iceland. It was a two hour drive from Reykjavik and a one hour walk once we parked. After trekking an hour across the blacksand beach, you arrive at a scene straight out of another...More
