The small town of Torsby stands in the far west of Sweden, 25 miles from the capital Stockholm but only 1 from the Norwegian capital Oslo. If you hire a car in Torsby you'll find it is a highly acclaimed tourist destination in Sweden's spectacular and popular Valleys region. That means plenty of opportunities for snow sports in the winter - including those taking place at the famous Fortum Ski Tunnel, Sweden's first - and a host of outdoor sports in the summer, including fishing, canoeing, mountain-biking, rafting, trekking and hunting.
Apart from being Sven-Goran Eriksson's hometown, Torsby's great claim to fame is the Fortum Ski Tunnel. The immense snow-filled, illuminated and fully covered ski-way was built in 2006 and, at almost a mile long, is the longest ski tunnel in the world. Visitors who hire a car in Torsby can easily tour the town's other attractions, and also have quick access to and from the local airport, which is right on the outskirts of the town. The town centre is used to catering for both tourists and a wide catchment area, that's why it has more than 60 shops and restaurants.

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.
