The town of Tornio stands on the Swedish border in far northwestern Finland. Tornio has grown up at the delta where the Torne River meets the Gulf of Bothnia. If you hire a car in Tornio you'll find that the E4 trunk road links the city to the village of Haparanda over the border in Sweden, while the E8 heads east into Finland. It's the world's most northerly motorway. The two countries' rail networks meet at this point too. In Haparanda's booming out-of-town shopping mall, you'll find a big Ikea store that's popular with visitors from Finland. Kemi-Tornio Airport is 2 minutes' drive to the southeast.
Tornio stands on an island and has always been an important trading point for the Lapland region. Today it is still proud of its shopping opportunities but it is a university and industrial town too. Visitors who hire a car in Tornio can explore the best sights, like the 17th-century wooden church with its landmark tower and the international golf course astride the border that is open 24-hours-day in the summer. Other highlights include the ornate St Peter and Paul's Orthodox Church, the relaxing Arboretum Park and the Provincial Museum of the Tornio River Valley.

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.
