Saudarkrokur Airport Mini Guide

Who Flies to Saudarkrokur?
Mostly sporty types, for the town has a reputation for everything to do with sport. There’s a great ski centre with slopes extending to a kilometre. Water sports take place in the sheltered bay in summer and the town has a thriving golf course too. The scenery around the town is fabulous with small lakes dotted around the coastal plain and the mountains that look benignly down over the town simply crying out to be scaled. For the history of the settlement you can visit the museum or the regional archives for more information on the hardy people that live there.

How do I get to Saudarkrokur?
You can drive to Saudarkrokur but whilst the journey passes some of the most beautiful scenery on earth, it’s not an easy drive. A better way of getting there and still seeing the scenery, but from a different angle, is to fly with Eagle Air on one of their twin-props from Reykjavik. International passengers will find it a little awkward as you’ll have to fly into Keflavik, get the shuttle to Reykjavik then the flight to Saudarkrokur. From the airport into the town is a matter of minutes and you can either wait for one of the buses that operates around the time of flights or take a taxi.

What is the Airport Like?
With only one flight in and out each day, it’s very quiet and small. The facilities are very basic as the terminal is really just a waiting room for people catching the flight. Don’t expect any shopping facilities or food outlets so you’ll need to take a snack with you to the airport when you depart. Car hire facilities are available there and the single company desk will help you to sort out the paperwork. Pre-booking is essential as with low passenger numbers, few vehicles are held at the airport.

Latest Update from Saudarkrokur Airport:

29/05/12 - For a number of years since the economic collapse, passenger traffic on Eagle Air's route to Reykjavic has been stagnant or declining. As prosperity slowly returns to the country, demand is improving and as part of Eagle Air's future plans, extra flights on the route are being considered.
