Arvidsjaur is about 100 kilometres south of the Arctic Circle in Norrland, Sweden. The region was originally occupied by Sami reindeer farmers, who are commemorated at Lappstaden, Sweden's largest preserved Sami church town. It has over 80 traditional buildings from the 18th century, still owned by the original Sami families.
There is over 50 kilometres of cross country skiing nearby, so rent a car from Arvidsjaur Airport and go to Vittjåkk Mountain Resort for ski slopes, dog sledding and snowmobile tours. Alternatively, enjoy the wildlife at Harrejaure nature reserve or head to Moskosel for exhilarating white water rafting on the Pite River.
In the summer you can enjoy hiking in the Vittjåkk-Akkanålke nature reserve. There is a road almost to the peak of Akkanålke with spectacular views over neighbouring Vittjåkk, and the mountains to the east. Or visit Renvallen, where you can walk with reindeers in the stunning subarctic winter forests.
Hire a car from Arvidsjaur Airport and you can also enjoy some peaceful boating or fishing on one of the region's 4,000 lakes and four rivers. Just make sure that if you decide you want to catch your own dinner, you get the appropriate fishing licence from the Tourist Office.

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.
