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.

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.
