HIRE CAR

The best option is to go through the various travel sites to get the best price. Hire cars available from Gällivare, Luleå and Kiruna airports and Gällivare station. Major rental firms, Avis, Hertz, Europcar etc are located here.

If you are arriving at Gällivare station and internet car hire sites do not give you the option to pick up in the town centre, send me an e mail with your details as we can speak to Avis and try to arrange an out of hours pick up from the station. 

For those who don’t have satnav if you are driving from Gällivare we are the first turn to the right signposted “Järnvägsstation” just past the Porjus village sign. If you are driving from the Jokkmokk direction, drive all the way through the village and turn left at the Järnvägsstation signpost.

For those who may be nervous about winter driving in the snow, it’s not as bad as you’d think! I certainly started off driving at 40 kmph with long lines of locals behind me but all cars are equipped with winter tyres and you soon get the hang of it.
