Car Hire: Egilsstadir Airport Mini Guide

Egilsstaðir Airport (IATA: EGS) is located in the eastern part of Iceland, serving the town of Egilsstaðir and its surrounding regions. As one of the primary airports outside the capital region, it acts as a significant hub for domestic flights. Given its strategic location, it offers travelers access to some of Iceland's most stunning landscapes, particularly those in the East Fjords.

Distance from the City: The airport is conveniently situated approximately 2 km from the town center of Egilsstaðir. This short distance makes it quick and straightforward for travelers to transit between the airport and the town.

Car Hire Benefits:

  1. Freedom & Flexibility: Hiring a car from Rhinocarhire at Egilsstaðir Airport gives you the independence to explore the East Fjords and other regions at your own pace. No need to be tied to bus schedules or tour group timings.

  2. Access Remote Locations: Some of Iceland's most picturesque spots are off the beaten track. A rental car allows you to visit such secluded places, many of which aren't easily accessible via public transport.

  3. Cost-Effective: For groups or families, hiring a car can often be more economical than purchasing individual tickets for public transport. Plus, you have the convenience of door-to-door transportation.

  4. Comfort & Convenience: Experience the comfort of starting your journey immediately upon landing, without waiting for buses or transfers. Also, having a vehicle in the unpredictable Icelandic weather ensures you're not left stranded.

  5. Tailored Choices: Rhinocarhire offers a diverse range of vehicles. Whether you're looking for a sturdy 4x4 to traverse rugged terrains or a more economical car for short distances, there's something to suit every traveler's needs.

Recommended Routes & Attractions: Hiring a car in Egilsstaðir opens up numerous possibilities for exploration:

  • Hallormsstaðaskógur: Iceland's largest forest is just a short drive away, offering hiking trails, picturesque landscapes, and the serene Lagarfljót lake.
  • East Fjords: Drive along the scenic coastal routes, dotted with quaint villages, rugged cliffs, and some of Iceland's most untouched beauty.
  • Seyðisfjörður: A picturesque town renowned for its colorful buildings, artsy vibe, and the stunning fjord surrounding it.

Final Note: Given the variable weather conditions and often remote locations in Iceland, travelers are advised to check road conditions, especially during winter, and ensure the chosen car is suited for their intended journey. Additionally, make sure the car is equipped with necessary safety equipment and that you're familiar with Icelandic driving regulations.
