  • Plane crashed on black beach near Vik, you reach by making walking 3.5 km one way. It took us 45 minutes to reach it and when it was very windy yesterday the task is very tiring. There is also a bus service that takes you to the plane for 15 euros per person. If you have 2 orettes to occupy and want to walk, take a leap...

  • The path is not short and we must be prepared for this. In total it took me about 2 hours to get to the plane and then go back to the parking lot. In addition, unfortunately, it can happen, as in my case, to face the path in adverse weather conditions: heavy rain and wind. On the other hand, the atmosphere is surreal and I think it's worth it.

  • Interesting piece of history to see off the ring road. There is a large parking lot and it’s very easy to find the route down to the beach. The plane crash is not visible from the parking lot and is deceivingly far (about an hour walk each way) but flat the whole way. Very popular spot!
  • Cool experience. Be aware you have to walk for almost 1 hour from the parking to the airplane wreck! And that's one way (so 2 hours in total) and it can be a very windy place because it's an open space. After 10:00 AM a shuttle is operating and can bring you for approx. 14 EUR. It's a shame people used graffiti on the plane wreck. But still impressive to see on the black sand!
