Rent a car in Kuopio with Europcar

Kuopio sits in the Finnish Lakeland area, between two huge lakes and is really under-rated as a tourist destination. But if you do make your way here, you won’t be disappointed – the stunning lakeside scenery, lush forests and great food make this town a welcome discovery!

The Europcar car rental experience in Kuopio

Enjoy flexible, convenient car hire in Kuopio from our rental station conveniently located in the very heart of the city at the main railway station. Easy to reach by car or train, we’ll have you on your way in no time!

Thanks to our wide range of vehicles, you can choose the car to suit you, wherever you’re going and however much you need to carry! Choose one of our smaller models if you’re staying local and will be spending your time exploring Kuopio and nearby attractions such as the Puijo Tower with its revolving restaurant. For longer journeys to Finland’s stunning countryside and lakes, a larger car or SUV will get you around in comfort.

Short and long term rental options give you the flexibility to choose a deal to suit you, whether that’s a day, a week or a month. And, for total convenience, you can pick up and drop off at different locations to suit you!

Driving in Kuopio

When driving in Kuopio, use the right hand side of the road and overtake to the left. Speed limits 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.

As with most Finnish cities, on-street parking is generally chargeable in the centre – you’ll need to pay at a ticket machine and then display the ticket inside your car. The rate is 1.40 euro / hour. You can move to a different parking space using the same ticket as long as it has time remaining on it. Keep an eye on the time, as fines will be imposed if you outstay your ticket!

Petrol stations are generally plentiful in the more built-up parts of Finland but become scarcer in the north of the country and rural areas, so plan your journey accordingly.

Discover Kuopio and surroundings by car

If you’re after some quirky entertainment, Kuopio is the place to go. Every July the Wife-Carrying World Championships is held here, attracting competitors and spectators from all over the world! For a more mainstream activity, the harbour is a beautiful place to admire the lake views and enjoy a delicious meal of locally caught fish.

Being in the heart of the Finnish lake district, Kuopio is an ideal base for exploring this stunning natural countryside. Take full advantage of your hire car and venture all the way to Savonlinna, 160km away, or Joensuu, 140km away, to get a real feel for the landscape and admire the views as you pass through. Of course, there are plenty of towns and villages to stop off at along the way if you want to do some sightseeing – or just indulge in some delicious local food!

For a change of pace and a slice of city life, head 300km south west to the cosmopolitan city of Tampere. The Särkänniemi Theme Park will delight kids, and adults too with its aquarium, planetarium, carnival game area, the famous Näsinneula observation tower, and live events. The Spy Museum is a fun interactive museum telling the story of espionage through the ages. And if you’ve worked up an appetite head to the Market Hall for lunch.
