Rent a car in Kittila with Europcar

Kittilä lies in the north of Finland in the province of Lapland, 200km north of the Arctic Circle. Popular in winter due to nearby ski resorts Levi and Ylläs, and the many festive themed activities such as reindeer sled rides and Santa visits, the town is a great base for exploring all that Lapland has to offer using your hire car.

The Europcar car rental experience in Kittila

Our Kittila rental station is conveniently situated at the town’s airport, so you can be in your hire car in no time when you arrive. The airport is just 6km outside Kittila, and close to National Road 79, giving easy access for your onward travel, whether that is into Kittila or further afield in Lapland. Shuttle bus services link the airport to nearby towns and ski resorts and usually operate on a pre-booking basis.

Whether you need a car for a day, a week, a month or even longer, we can cover your rental needs with our flexible and affordable deals. From a compact Volkswagen up to a roomy Opel Vivaro, and from a luxury Audi Q5 to a practical Volkswagen Transporter van, we’ve got the car for your journey.

Plus, if a one-way trip suits you better, you can drop off your hire car at another Europcar station when you reach your destination. It all adds up to a great deal.

Driving in Kittila

In Finland, cars are driven on the right hand side of the road and overtaking is to the left. Speed limits for cars are 50km/h in built-up areas, 100-120km/h on motorways, and a variable limit of between 80 and 100km/h on other roads.

In Kittila most on-street parking is chargeable – you will need to pay at a ticket machine and then display the ticket inside your car. The rate is 1.40 euro / hour.

Be aware that if you are driving further afield into Lapland, in rural and remote areas petrol stations may be further apart so plan your journey carefully. Credit cards are accepted at most petrol stations.

If you run into any problems on your journey, you can dial 112 from anywhere in Europe and an operator will connect you to an emergency service in the country you're visiting. Operators can answer your call in their native language, English, and French.

Discover Kittila and surroundings by car

Kittila is primarily known as a gateway to the popular Levi ski resort but it is also a lovely place to spend a day or two in its own right. Visit the Einari Junttila Taidemuseo to admire around 85 works of the famous Finnish artist inspired by his native Lapland landscapes.

Itching to get out and about in your hire car? You’ll be spoilt for choice deciding where to go first in this wild and beautiful part of Finland.

Two hours away is the amethyst mine at Lampivaara, the only active amethyst mine remaining in Europe. Take a tour and learn about the history of the crystals and see how the amethysts are mined, and you’ll even have the chance to dig for your own amethyst and take it home as a memento.

Daredevils might want to venture two and a half hours to the ski resort of Saariselka where you can plummet down the longest toboggan run in Finland!
