The airfield at Umeå occupies flat land on the west bank the River Ume. Umea Airport is a single-runway, small regional airport with a smart modern terminal and ample outdoor parking. If you pick up a hire car at the airport you'll find the city centre is just two miles to the north. The road connections are good too: the E12 and E12 highways skirt the airfield providing easy access to the main Swedish coast road and the road inland towards Lycksele and Lapland. Holmsund and the ferry to Vaasa in Finland is a six-mile drive down the opposite river bank.
The university city of Umeå stands near the mouth of the River Ume on the Swedish coast at one of the narrowest points of the Gulf of Bothnia. It's one of the commercial and arts capitals of northern Sweden and was European City of Culture in 2014. So you'll find a good variety of shopping – and a good variety of art galleries too. With a big student population there's lively nightlife, particularly if you like live music. Outside the city the highlights include Älgens Hus, an elk farm with animals so tame you can stroke them, and the charming rural museum at Bobacksgården.

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.
