The town of Lohja stands roughly 4 miles west of Helsinki in south-western Finland, which means that visitors who hire a car in Lohja can drive to the capital in an hour. The surrounding area is dominated by Lohjanjärvi Lake and the hills of the Lohja Ridge. One of the highlights is Lohjansaari Island, which features an orchard of thousands of apple trees providing some stunning scenery. Nearby, the Fruticetum Gardens feature more than 3 different species of apple and hundreds of other fruit species. Look out too for Kovela Manor, which has a museum of extraordinary old Finnish agricultural machinery.
Lohja is a leafy modern town with a rich history as a trading post and a centre for horticulture. There's a mix of modern architecture, like the striking library, and the old, like the 15th-century gothic church of St Lawrence, one of the town's main attractions. With your Lohja car rental it's easy to tour all the local sights. The best known is the Tytyri Mine Museum, where visitors can take old limestone mine wagons to see displays 300ft underground. The town also has a local history and culture museum, a golf course and an attractive lakeside waterfront with a floating restaurant. Families can also try the Neidonkeidas water park and spa centre.

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.
