  • The distance is not very far, two people talk and laugh an hour can be, do not look at the door need three or four hours of words, take the bus need to spend money, 2000kr round trip should be, no need, the wreckage of the plane is also very good, more people, a lot of where to take wedding photos, standing on the plane more spectacular, standing on the plane more spectacular,

  • The way to the plane is mega long and just takes 45min with very fast walking (almost walking). The bus there absolutely overpriced (15€ one way). Once there, a plane wreck surrounded by 1 million Chinese in orange overalls awaits us. There are a thousand more beautiful places in Iceland!!

  • It took us 38 minutes to walk there at a fast pace, terrain was fine. Definitely try to go before or after the trolley starts to beat the masses and if you can go super early in the morning or late at night you'll have the place to yourself to take photos which is ideal. You're not supposed to climb on the plane and it is a little precarious but obviously everyone does, just be careful. Cool place to use a drone. Can also see glaciers and amazing rock formations in the distance.
  • The plane wreck is a very interesting place as it sits right next to am isolated yet beautiful beach. The sign says the hike takes about 3-4 hours round-trip but in reality it takes about 1.5-2 hours. It's a very easy hike and you'll be treated to a 360 degree view of inspiring landscapes as well as a unique part of history. I couldn't recommend it enough.
