Tucked away in the northernmost part of Sweden, Kiruna boasts a breathtaking landscape dominated by mountains, lakes, and the mysterious Northern Lights. As you step out of Kiruna Airport, Rhinocarhire is ready to turn your Arctic adventure into an unforgettable escapade.
Exiting Kiruna Airport:
After collecting your rental from Kiruna Airport, finding your way is straightforward. Joining the E10, also known as the Northern Lights Road, you are well on your way to Kiruna's city center and further to the magical landscapes of Swedish Lapland.
Fuel stations are available in Kiruna's town and along major routes. Given the vast and sometimes remote nature of the area, always ensure you have a full tank when embarking on longer journeys, especially in winter.
Sweden's road system is mainly free, but it's always good to be informed about any potential toll routes if venturing beyond Kiruna. Consult with Rhinocarhire upon vehicle collection for any updated toll information.
Roads in and around Kiruna are well-maintained, but remember that this is the Arctic Circle. Snow and ice can dominate the roads in winter, so always stay updated with weather conditions.
Traffic in Kiruna remains relatively light. However, during specific seasons, especially when the Northern Lights are most visible, the influx of tourists can lead to increased traffic.
While Kiruna is remote, it's not untouched by modern advancements. A few EV charging stations exist in the town, suitable for those opting for electric rentals.
Weather & Choice of Car:
Kiruna experiences harsh winters with heavy snowfall. A 4x4 or an SUV equipped with winter tires is not just recommended but often essential. In summer, however, a standard car suffices for most routes.
Importance of Booking Early:
To secure the best-suited vehicle, especially during the Northern Lights season or the Midnight Sun period, book well in advance. This ensures availability and competitive pricing.
