The tiny leafy town of Vara is found in southwest Sweden, in the rural area between the country's two biggest lakes, Vättern and Vänern. It stands on the main E2 trunk road, about 55 miles north east of Gothenburg and is surrounded by villages and farms, forests, lakes and rivers.
If you hire a car in Vara you can take day-trips to either of the big lakes. Highlights of the countryside around Vara itself include the archeological sights of Larv, the Royal church at Stora Levene and the riverside swimming pool at Travad.
Visitors who hire a car in Vara can explore the full extent of what the area has to offer. It's only a small community so is the perfect place for those looking to experience a quiet getaway. One of the best known attractions is the Sparlosasten Museum. It's not easy to find, down a narrow lane, but is simply built around a spectacular large Viking rune stone. The other highlight of Vara is the Konserthus, an acclaimed modern venue for live music performances.
Vara is a pleasant small town to explore. Among the painted shops and houses look out for the popular Conditori Nordpolen, a hand-made bread and pastry shop and café dating back more than 100 years.

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.
