  • The dust was really bad on the monotonous walk - expect wind, the terrain is very open and exposed. The full length of our legs got caked with the dry volcanic dust. Bring a bandana to cover your...

  • this place is really cool. It’s very simple, as it is only a plane crash. But has been there for 50 years and the location with the plane is what makes it really neat. The 45 minute walk each way is absolutely worth it. Most people did not then take the time to walk another 200 feet to the black beach and wash the ocean crash. If I come to Iceland I will walk back to the plane yet again. Great for pictures
  • We stopped here on an ATV tour and the plane was cool to see, but I wouldn't make a special trip out here for it. There's a lot prettier spots to see on the black sand beaches than a downed plane. I think the walk can be over a half hour each way. Decent overall but see some of the better features Iceland has to offer.
