Less than two hours west of Swedish capital Stockholm is the town of Arboga, whose rich heritage benefits from the accessible transport links and proximity to the capital. A key part of Sweden's history, it's the town where much trade to the rest of Europe was made possible along its eponymous river, as well as the site of Sweden's first national parliament. Car hire from Arboga allows you to take in the town's full range of historical sites, as well as easy access to Sweden's two biggest cities, Stockholm and Gothenburg (four hours southwest) via the E18 and E2 roads.
The cobbled streets of Västerlånggatan in the old town are an absolute must-see while you're in Arboga; the period houses which remain there are a stunning reminder of the town's medieval importance to the entire country. Jädersbruk och Hjälmare canal was Sweden's first artificial waterway which helped boost trade.
Should you hire a car in Arboga, you'll be glad of the means to get around faster. Head south of the river towards Arboga's beautiful forests to enjoy archery, hiking and canoeing. For a taste of the metropolitan life in Sweden, Stockholm is just a couple of hours away, offering many arts and leisure facilities, plus a variety of shopping attractions to visitors in Normalm.

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.
