Isafjordur Domestic Airport
**(Calls cost 7p per minute plus your phone company's access charge)
The humble single-runway Isafjordur Airport serves the remote Westfjords region of northwest Iceland. The vast majority of its flights are from and to the island's capital Reyvjavik. The airfield itself stands on a flat platform of land jutting into the fjord with mountains all around. There's a small terminal building and not much else here. Visitors who collect a hire car at Isafjordur Airport however find that it's very convenient: the Route 61 passes by the entrance, giving easy access to all parts of this region, including Isafjordur on the other shore of the fjord, about three miles to the north.
Isafjordur is a small town standing beneath imposing mountainous slopes at the edge of Vestfirðir. There's an arts centre housed in what was once a hospital, and a folk museum which contains Iceland's oldest house. An 18th-century building is among the many wooden houses you'll find in town, with this one now host to a maritime and fishing museum. Look out too for Vestfirzka Verzlunin, specializing in locally-produced goods including art, books and food. The town's main claim to tourism fame, however, is as a centre for organized trips into the wonderful wildernesses beyond.

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.
