The Plane Wreck Shuttle follows a 30minute schedule every day from 10:00am, all year round as long as conditions allow.

The parking area is located 6 km east of Skógar and 27 km west of Vík. Tickets for all departures are also sold on location.


Explore the famous Douglas DC-3 Airplane Wreck that crashed on the black sands of Sólheimasandur in November 1973.

The Plane Wreck Shuttle service takes you the 4 kilometers (2.5 miles) to the DC-3 wreckage in less than 15 minutes. Enjoy the harsh but beautiful landscape around the Airplane Wreck and the black sand beach close by before we pick you up, so you can relax in the comfy shuttle as we transport you back to your vehicle. 

Frequent trips from 10:00 to 17:00* operate every day. Departures are from the Sólheimasandur / Plane Wreck parking lot (P), by the ring road, between our Sólheimajökull and Mýrdalsjokull Base Camps (see directions).

*One way tickets are available on location.

**Dependent on daylight hours and conditions, departures may be canceled.
