The town of Hofn stands at the tip of a peninsula in the southeast corner of Iceland amid a spectacular landscape of beaches, sand bars, lagoons and islands. Three miles inland, alongside a tidal inlet, you'll find the Hornafjordur Airport, which provides internal flights to Reykjavik on the west coast. Besides the remote beauty located in this region, hiring a car in Hofn allows you to travel further afield in Iceland - with a major point of interest being Vatnajökull, the biggest glacier in Europe, as well as one of the continent's largest national parks - which contains a number of active volcanoes.
If you pick up a hire car in Hofn, you'll have access to the outer reaches of the country including its beautiful scenery and numerous local attractions. The town may be a small and remote fishing settlement almost encircled by the sea, but there's no denying the local geography is impressive. That's why it has become a centre for adventure tourists, boat tours and explorations into the wild landscapes. But the town itself has a few things to look out for - spot the homely little museums of folk craft and Icelandic geology. Hofn's most popular site, however, is the swimming pool - complete with an ice bath.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
