Hammerfest Airport stands on the northern outskirts of the town of Hammerfest in the far north of Norway. In this remote Arctic spot on the sparsely-populated island of Kvaloya, the regional airport forms a vital link with the rest of the country, as well as an important local helicopter link. The airport stands among rough open ground between a lake and the sea. It has a modern terminal building and car parking. Travellers who pick up a hire car at Hammerfest Airport can drive into the centre of town in a few minutes, or head south on Rv96 to the mainland.
Hire a car at Hammerfest Airport and your drive will take in a harbour town which was completely rebuilt following the events of World War II. With its deep, ice-free harbour, Hammerfest has been able to take advantage of the opportunities afforded in the petroleum and fishing industries. Visitors find that much of the locals' lifestyle so far inside the Arctic Circle is surprisingly familiar, thanks to a busy shopping mall along with a selection of waterfront cafes. It serves as a base for many adventures into the surrounding fjords, islands and rocky hills. Winter sports are popular here, of course, including ice-fishing, riding snowmobiles, sledding and skiing; while summer activities include a spot of golf, riding the biking trails, and going fishing.

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.
