Kiruna Airport occupies a flat strip of wild countryside between lakes and rocky outcrops about four miles southeast of the town itself. The airport serves a sparsely populated region of northern Sweden. If you take up car hire from Kiruna Airport, the access road leads from the terminal straight to the E10 trunk road which heads straight into Kiruna, or allows you to drive southeast all the day to the Gulf of Bothnia. There are plenty of areas to go hiking in Kiruna, so you may need to pack some walking boots.
Kiruna is Sweden's most northerly town, 90 miles north of the Arctic Circle. If you hire a car from Kiruna Airport you'll see that it stands in a remote mountainous region, surrounded by a mix of barren land and forest. The town is a centre for iron ore mining and space research. Tourism is important too - visitors come to experience local Sami culture and activities, winter sports and summer adventures. The midnight sun and Northern Lights are big draws to the area and it's also an area for manufacturers to test new cars. Every year a popular Ice Hotel is built in the woods about ten miles outside the town.
With a wide range of travellers passing through our locations every day, we've got a wide range of vehicles on offer to suit your needs - from smart executive saloons to compact family hatchbacks. ***

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.
