Rent a car in Ivalo with Europcar

Ivalo is situated near the northern tip of Finland, in Lapland, and its airport is the most northerly in the country. Most visitors are here for the snow, winter sports, and of course the famous Northern Lights! Make sure you come prepared for the cold, and then you’re ready to enjoy skiing, skidoo-ing, sledding, and Aurora-chasing to your heart’s content!

Driving in Ivalo

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 towns and cities most on-street parking is chargeable – you will need to pay at a ticket machine and then display the ticket inside your car.

Be aware that if you are driving further afield into more 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 Ivalo and surroundings by car

This charming town is often used as a base for exploring the skiing and Northern-Lights spotting opportunities in the vicinity – the airport makes it a convenient starting point for many adventures.

Saariselka is a large ski resort, just half an hour from Ivalo, and offers enough snowy activities to keep even the most enthusiastic visitor amused! Adrenaline junkies should try out the longest toboggan run in Lapland, while if you fancy a gentler pastime, a reindeer sleigh ride is a brilliant way of admiring the scenery in comfort. And of course, you’ll want to round off your day with some delicious food – the Ice Restaurant is a quirky place to enjoy typical Finnish food such as reindeer steaks.

Rovaniemi is just over three hours away by car and is a simply magical place for children – or even big kids! If you’ve ever wanted to meet the real Santa Claus, ride the Santa Claus Express, and explore Santa Claus Village, you’re in the right place!
