Glomfjord is a very small town in Norway that is renowned for its stunning landscape, characterised by the glorious glaciers near the town. The town is actually located very north in the country, higher than the Arctic Circle and close to the country's second largest glacier, Svartisen. Winter sports like snowboarding and skiing are popular here and the abundance of amazing mountains mean opportunities for hiking are rife. The town is very small, meaning you'll need to hire a car in Glomfjord to get access to attractions outside of the town.
One of the most important attractions here is the fjord here named after the town itself, Glomfjord. Here you will be greeted by stunning waterfalls, wildlife, lush green scenery, making this a perfect outing for an afternoon. The Glomfjord Ski Resort is also a great idea and the mountains here provide plenty of opportunities for skiing, snowboarding, and other winter activities. If you like hiking then it's recommended you try hiking up the Glomfjord Mountain and through the valley Fykandalen. Many of the attractions and activities here are spread out because the town is so small so it's worth hiring a car in Glomfjord so you can get around conveniently.

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.
