About Vik

The Black Beach is in the village of Vik in Iceland. One needs to first go to Reykjavik and from there you can head to Vik, which is approx a 2 hour drive, to see this Black Sand Beach which has been immortalized by the song "Gherua..." in the Bollywood movie, Dilwale. But beware, high tides hit this beach often, so you may not be allowed into the water. Enjoy a walk on the beach and immerse in the beautiful surrounding cliffs around.Wish I could know more about the crash landed plane and what happened then? Interested? Shall I tell you more....?It was the year 1973 and a United States DC Plane was flying in the Sky. Everything was perfect, the whether was ok and all the engines were working fine. Why then did the plane crash? Silly it may sound, but yes, the plane ran out of fuel and crashed on the black beach at Solheimasandur, in the South Coast of Iceland. But there were no causalities and all the passengers were safe. Later it turned out that the pilot had simply switched over to the wrong fuel tank.
