Car Hire Sweden
Many people think Sweden equals snow and skiing. But it has oh so much more to offer! Surprisingly, Sweden has large parts of its community that are still quite private and still living the way they originally did many years ago. They have now honed their original crafts and abilities to help provide a source of income for themselves and you will find wonderful shopping opportunities here. Dala horses are a traditional creation from Sweden and were originally hand carved for children's toys but have become a very popular tourist gift. Prices depend on whether they are hand-made or factory produced.
The Sami people from North Sweden hand craft knives, jewellery and clothing and you can find their products either in town at gift shops or take a Budget hire car and pick yourself up one from their base. Hjorton is a speciality jam in Sweden made form yellow berries and is said to be the perfect accompaniment to vanilla ice cream so make sure you sample some while you are there.
Car Rental Sweden
Naturally during the winter months, skiing is a commonly undertaken activity for tourists and natives alike. Be sure to enquire about Budget's snow chain provisions if visiting during this period to ensure you undertake your journey in safety. One of the major attractions in Sweden is to visit Swedish Lapland, this snow covered wilderness is impressive in its size and stature, and it even gives travellers the opportunity to see the magnificent northern lights.
Sweden is not just about snow however, consider booking your rental car during the summer months and you will find a landscape that is lush and green, with many pursuits to keep even the most active traveller entertained. For those who find this too active, consider sitting in an authentic Swedish sauna and pampering yourself to the extreme.
During the summer months it is advisable to head into the pristine wilderness of Sweden to see what Swedes label the 'big six'. Just like the 'big five' in Africa this is a collection of animals that are a pure delight to see in their natural habitat. The 'big six' is made up of some majestic creatures; moose and musk ox, wolves, bears as well as the rarer lynx and wolverine can all be seen in Sweden. As one of the most child friendly places to visit, Sweden makes an ideal destination for families; the chance to undertake simple pleasures such a hiking, berry picking and even swimming in the lakes filled with crystal clear waters should not be missed.
With beautiful stretches of coastline interspersed with stunning villages and towns, a tour of Sweden will allow you to sample Swedish life as well as some of the freshest fish dishes you will ever taste. Whatever your reasons for visiting Sweden, a Budget hire car is the perfect accompaniment to your trip.
