Arnór was born in Akranes, Iceland, and is a cousin of Pétur Pétursson. He came to the Netherlands already at a young age, and played for the youth teams of SC Heerenveen. He made his senior debut in 2008. He scored his first Heerenveen goal on 19 October 2008, in a match against Roda JC.
In June 2010, he moved to Esbjerg fB in the Danish Superliga on a free transfer. Exactly three years later, in July 2013, he moved to Helsingborgs IF in Sweden. Once again he was signed on a free transfer.
He was loaned to FC Torpedo Moscow in the Russian Football Premier League in early 2015. On his debut on 15 March 2015 against FC Zenit St. Petersburg, he scored an added-time equalizer for his team in a 1–1 draw. He eventually returned to Helsingborg when the loan spell ended, only to be deemed surplus to requirements (due to his reported high salary) by then manager Henrik Larsson.
In December 2015 he signed for the Stockholm-based club Hammarby IF on a three year-deal. During his first season at the club Smárason quickly established himself as a regular starter, scoring on 4 different occasions.
