Green forests, blue lakes and red timber houses: that’s how we imagine Sweden. If you drive through Sweden in a hire car, you can discover even more.
Often almost hidden away, you will discover traditional craftsmen at work, museums, galleries and many other fascinating facets of Sweden. June is a good month explore Sweden by car, especially around the Midsommarfest, which is celebrated throughout the country.
Picking up a hire car in Sweden is child’s play, thanks to the large selection of car rental stations that partner with TUI Cars. In addition, the roads are well developed. From Stockholm and Gothenburg driving a breezy cabriolet is a fun and fast way of reaching the most important sights and destination in the country.
In the footsteps of Astrid Lindgren - Villa Kunterbunt
The stories of Pippi Langstrumpf, the little, mischievous girl with her supernatural powers, inspire children all over the world to this day.
In Småland, where Astrid Lindgren wrote her stories, there is now a themed adventure park in her honour. Many original locations can be visited by car in Sweden.
Småland is situated in the south-west of Sweden and can be reached by car from Trelleborg or Malmö. There you can hire a car or take the train to pick up a hire car in Jönköping, the home of IKEA.
Discovery tour by car: Sweden and the polar lights
The sky shimmers in soft shades when the aurora borealis of northern Sweden breaks through the darkness of the night.
The bizarre phenomenon of the northern lights looks like a fluttering, coloured veil glowing on the horizon. In a hire car in Sweden you can observe another natural phenomenon, the midsummer night. The light of the late evening sun, even though it is over the horizon, turns night into day - even at midnight it is still light outside.
In your hire car booked through the broker TUI Cars and picked up at Stockholm Airport you can drive to north Sweden in 3 to 4 days.
