Unlocking Norway's Far North: Car Hire at Kirkenes Airport with Rhinocarhire

Embarking on the Northernmost Journey – Kirkenes Airport:
At the very top of Norway, where the easternmost point meets the Russian border, lies Kirkenes. It's a realm of polar nights, midnight sun, and a crossroad of cultures. Starting your journey at Kirkenes Airport with a car from Rhinocarhire guarantees an unmatched adventure into this Arctic wonderland.

Renting a car from Kirkenes Airport, Høybuktmoen (KKN), is your ticket to exploring the enchanting Arctic wilderness, rich cultural heritage, and unique geopolitical landscape of Eastern Finnmark. Here's how to make the most of your hire car adventure from Kirkenes Airport:

Essential Insights for Car Hire from Kirkenes Airport:

  1. Exit Roads: Once you land, you're directly on the E6, the major road that connects much of Northern Norway. This artery provides a straightforward route to Kirkenes and other nearby destinations.

  2. Fuel: Given the remote nature of the region, while fuel stations exist in Kirkenes and along the E6, it's wise to keep your tank topped up when setting out on longer drives.

  3. Tolls: Norway's toll system, AutoPASS, is operational in some areas. Equip yourself with knowledge about this system for smooth driving across the country.

  4. Road Conditions: Roads are well-maintained, but the Arctic environment means snow and ice are prevalent for many months. Ensure your rented car is winter-ready.

  5. Traffic: Kirkenes, being remote, typically has lighter traffic. However, as with many tourist hotspots, the summer months can witness a slight increase.

  6. EV Charging: Norway's commitment to green travel is evident even here. Electric vehicle charging points can be found in Kirkenes and some other locations.

  7. Weather & Car Choice: With long, cold winters and short, mild summers, it's crucial to choose a car that suits the season. Winter tires, heaters, and 4x4s might be more appropriate for the colder months.

  8. Booking Ahead: To ensure you get the best car that fits your needs and at an excellent rate, it's always recommended to book in advance, especially during the peak season.

  9. Optional Add-ons: Rhinocarhire offers a variety of extras like snow chains, GPS devices, and child safety seats to make your Arctic journey comfortable and safe.
