Hornafjörður Airport serves an area of southeast Iceland, almost always with flights across the island to and from the capital Reykjavik. The town of Höfn stands three miles south of the airport and visitors hire a car at Hornafjörður Airport to explore the extraordinary scenery here. The airport itself occupies a flat piece of land next to a tidal inlet. It has a small modern terminal building but little else: cars are parked freely on a hard-standing outside and the airport access road is a narrow lane between windswept fields. Nevertheless it leads directly to Iceland's most important road, the Highway One coastal road.
If you hire a car from Hornafjörður Airport, drive to Höfn and you'll see how the town stands at the end of an unusual peninsular surrounded by a complex array of sand bars, lagoons and islands. This geographic oddity stands at the foot of the Vatnajökull Glacier, which is the biggest in Europe. Höfn itself is a small and remote fishing village. Apart from trips into the landscape, there are just a few attractions, like the folk museum, geological museum and an indoor swimming pool. Meanwhile many visitors set off on foot to try to find the unusual local rock formations called The Dwarf Crags.
