Bardufoss Airport Car Rental

Bardufoss Airport Basics.....

Bardufoss Airport (BDU) is mainly a military airport, but also has regular commercial flights from Norwegian Air Shuttle.  The airport handles around 180,000 passengers a year.  This is the home of the Norwegian Aviation College that has flying lessons as well as parachute jumping.  Bardufoss is also the home of the Air Force Flight Training for the Norwegian Air Force.  It's a full military base with helicopters as well as jets part of the 139th Air Wing Squadron.  It is the oldest airfield for military use in the country.  It's also used for specific cold weather training.  The airport has one runway.

Heggelia is a very small town in the Bardufoss area. It really should be considered a village with a small population of 928.  Many people bypass the region for other areas, but it still is a nice place to visit while you're on the way to other locations in Norway.

Bardufoss Airport Car Rental.....

There is a good representation of car rental companies at the airport. These desks are situated near the baggage claim area and include Avis, Europcar, Budget, Hertz and Sixt Car Rental.

If traveling to Heggelia (see picture below) via rental car, count on an easy 5 km drive and should only take 10-15 minutes by car.  At the Airport after picking up your car, head out towards Rv853.  Make a left on Rv853 and drive for about 1 km.  At the traffic circle, take the first exit staying on  Rv853.  You'll be driving towards a number of white buildings on the right side of the road.   As you approach another turning circle, follow it around and take the second exit onto E6 for about 3.3 km. You will go through one more turning circle and you will have arrived in the city.

If traveling to Andselv, you will exit via the same method.  However, you will continue on Rv853 all the way into the town.  Just remember that when taxiing thru traffic circles, you will continue straight thru the circle instead of turning off.  Remember to re-fuel your rental car at a petrol station before returning.  There isn't one close to the airport, so the best place to refuel will be in one of the local towns near the airport.
