Rent a car in Gävle with Europcar

Founded in 1446, Gävle (pronounced ‘yerv-luh’) is the oldest city in Sweden’s Norrland region. Located on the coast of the Bothnian sea, this lively little town is worth exploring for a couple of days before heading off into the wild. Start off with Gamla Gefle and its charming old town, located just south Gävle river. Stroll along its cobblestoned streets with their tiny colourful houses before heading back across the river to Heliga Trefaldighets kyrka — the city’s oldest church and one of the only few buildings that was spared by the 1869 fire. Whisky lovers can take a quick drive 5 km southwest of Gävle, where they’ll find Mackmyra Svensk Whisky — Scandinavia’s only single-malt whisky distillery, established in 1999. Explore your palette and taste the fiery spicy sweetness of Sweden! If you share the Swedes’ passion for good coffee, you’re in luck! Gävle is home to Scandanavia’s largest roastery, Gevalia, who have been supplying Sweden’s caffeine fix since 1853. After you’ve had one last cup of coffee for the road, don’t forget to greet the city’s straw-made mascot: the Gävle Goat!

Driving in Gävle

In Sweden, your headlights must always be switched on, even in the daytime, and if you drive your car between 1 December and 31 March, you should have winter tyres on your vehicle.

Parking shouldn’t be a problem in Gävle — most hotels have parking facilities and there are several public parking facilities throughout town.

Discover Gävle and the surrounding area by car

Whether you want to drive along the magnificent Bothnian sea coast or want to make your way south to explore Stockholm aka ‘Venice of the North’, you won’t be disappointed by your Swedish adventure with Europcar! Stop by the quiet town of Hudiksvall — about 130 km north of Gävle — to peacefully admire the majestic beauty of the Hornslandet peninsula. A couple of kilometres further, you’ll find the splendour of Sundsvall — the ‘Stone City’. If you have time on your hands, make the stretch to Härnösand — the gate to the stunning coastline of Höga Kusten. From old 18th century cottages and wooden houses to the city centre’s open-air museum, Härnösand abounds with delights. And of course, don’t miss gorgeous Stockholm — it is only a short drive away, about 200 km south of Gävle! Its soul, elegance, and style will steal your heart!

Höga Kusten (the High Coast)

If you’re here to explore Sweden’s beautiful wilderness, drive 250 km north of Gävle to reach Höga Kusten. Europcar is with your every step of the way on one of the most scenic drives of your life! From Härnösand to Örnsköldsvik, you’ll explore steep granite cliffs, lakes, fjords and the Skuleskogen National Park — thereafter onto Ulvön and Trysunda, with their beautiful rocky islands and spectacular landscapes.
