DC3 Plane Wreck and Black Sands

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 just 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).
