Top tips for hiring a car in Lapland

  • When travelling to and from Lapland's airports, it is essential to prioritise child safety by following the rules regarding car seats. Parents should bring their car seats for infants up to 1 year old, and toddlers up to 4 years old. While some car hire companies may offer car seats, it is recommended to have your own to ensure availability and guarantee the safety of your child during the journey.
  • Exploring Lapland by car offers numerous advantages over other modes of transportation. With Lapland car hire, you have the freedom and flexibility to discover the region at your own pace. Unlike public transportation, a car allows you to reach remote and picturesque locations, like the charming Arctic villages of Rovaniemi and Levi, or the stunning landscapes of Urho Kekkonen National Park.
  • If you plan to venture into remote areas or tackle rugged terrains, such as the Finnish wilderness, a four-wheel drive car is recommended to ensure better traction and handling. On the other hand, if your itinerary revolves around well-established routes like the main towns and attractions in Rovaniemi and Levi, a reliable two-wheel drive car will be more than sufficient. Take into account the unique demands of your explorations and choose your car accordingly.
  • Get set for an epic drive in Lapland! Keep an eye out for the local reindeer – they're known for their spontaneous road appearances. Oh, and don't underestimate the weather, especially during winter. Make sure your car is winter-ready and equipped with sturdy winter tyres. Be prepared for varying road conditions, including icy patches and snow-covered roads. Take note of any specific road signs or regulations, especially when driving through national parks or remote areas.

    Driving in Lapland offers a unique experience compared to driving in other parts of the country. The driving style in this region is generally relaxed and courteous, reflecting the laid-back nature of the locals. However, it's important to note that driving conditions can change drastically depending on where you are in Lapland. While major roads and highways are well-maintained and of good quality, some rural and wilderness areas may have narrower roads with gravel surfaces. It's crucial to adhere to the posted speed limits, which are typically lower in residential areas and higher on major roads.

If your licence isn't a local one, bring along an International Driving Permit (IDP) to be safe. If you're under 25, expect to be charged an additional surcharge on top of your hire costs, for being a young driver. You may also be limited to driving a compact vehicle if you're under 25. Make sure you've arranged everything online and bring your confirmation details to avoid any issues. Remember, you'll also need a valid credit card in your name to pay for the car and the security deposit.
