Sólheimarsandur Crash

Sólheimarsandur Crash

Sólheimarsandur Beach, Iceland

N 63° 27' 32.796" W 19° 21' 53.22"


Visiting the Sólheimarsandur plane crash at night is a unique and eerie experience that combines the beauty of Iceland's rugged landscapes with a haunting reminder of a tragic event. The wreckage of the US Navy DC-3 plane that crashed in 1973 is a surreal sight, almost frozen in time amid the vast expanse of black sand and dramatic mountains. The area is remote and desolate, with only the moon and stars providing light in the darkness. As one gets closer, the twisted metal and broken pieces of the plane become more visible, casting ominous shadows in the moonlight. Despite the darkness, the beauty of the surrounding landscape can still be appreciated, with the nearby mountains and glacier providing a stunning backdrop to the wreckage.
