Finnish Lapland is known for its winter activities and warm hospitality; found some 12 miles north of the Arctic Circle, Kittilä is a fine example of both, with winter sports and amazing scenery on offer here.
If hiring a car in Kittilä you'll be able to reach the array of ski resorts and tourist attractions in the area, and also have the means to explore the snow-capped surroundings of Lapland. In the summer visitors can often cycle around town to enjoy the scenery, and experience the surreal effect of near-daylight for months on end due to Kittilä's geographical position.
Levi ski resort is found within Kittilä city limits; it hosts various professional ski events during the late autumn and early winter because the later months can be too cold - it once reached lower than 50 degrees Celsius. At the resort visitors of all skill levels can take to one of the many ski slopes, while snowboarders can also get their fix on half-pipes of varying degrees.
Hiring a car in Kittilä affords you the opportunity to drive out to see one of the world's most phenomenal natural occurrences - the Northern Lights. A magnificent spectacle in the sky caused by solar winds, these waves of greenish light must be seen to be believed.

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.
