Just 6 miles northwest of Helsinki, the city of Lahti stands on the edge of Finland's watery lake district. Visitors who hire a car in Lahti can take advantage of some of southern Finland's best snow sports facilities and the popular Enonsaari Island in the Lake, where families flock to enjoy the scenic spots for swimming and picnics. Further afield, Kelvenne Island is considered one of Finland's most picturesque, and Pyhaniemi Manor is one of the country's most important stately homes. Orimattila has the biggest outlet mall in the region, and Messilä has the largest ski centre in southern Finland.
Finland's ninth-largest city is renowned as a centre for design and environmentalism. By hiring a car in Lahti you'll be able to find the attractive waterfront, as the city stands in a bay on the shore of Lake Vesijärvi. The spectacular wooden Sibelius Hall is a large modern music venue which is home to one of Finland's best-known symphony orchestras. The Hall is an attraction in its own right, with tours and special exhibitions. The impressive sports centre includes ski jumps, chair lifts and a ski museum, there's a historical museum in an old manor house and the Laune Family Park is an extensive indoor and outdoor adventure playground.

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.
