The city of Hameenlinna stands in southern Finland, midway between Helsinki and Tampere. If you hire a car here you'll see it's about 6 miles north of the capital on the E12 highway. The highlights of the surrounding area of lakes and forests includes the popular Aulanko Resort - a vast 19th-century park including gardens, golf courses, spa, shops, and canoeing. It's 3 miles to the wilderness park at Evo - a popular destination for hiking and canoeing enthusiasts while the less energetic can enjoy scenic boat trips around the interconnecting lakes of the region.
Visitors who hire a car in Hameenlinna find that they can tour the attractions easily. These include Lake Vanajavesi alongside the city and the medieval Häme Castle on the waterside. It is now a city landmark and museum. The Verkatehdas complex, housed in a former mill, includes an arts centre, gallery and restaurants. The city was the birthplace of composer Sibelius. His family home is open to the public and a Sibelius Centre in the city centre serves as a museum and shop. Elsewhere discover shopping attractions at the Littala Glass Centre, the independent shops of the Tuulonen Plaza and the busy Tiirio Mall on the outskirts of the city.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
