This is the perfect destination for those who love the great outdoors, and by booking a Shetland car rental you can take full advantage. Hike along rugged coasts, enlist a guide to do some sea kayaking, or simply observe the ever-changing weather. Shetland's multiple islands are a prime location for spotting seabirds such as puffins, razorbills, kittiwakes and guillemots, and you are also likely to see otters, seals and even whales along the shore.
Shetlanders are proud of their Viking heritage, as expressed in the annual celebration of Up Helly Aa, Europe's biggest fire festival. You can also catch a performance of traditional fiddle music during your visit, or shop for handmade knitwear in the famous Fair Isle pattern. There are flights to Shetland, or you can take the ferry – either way it is usually more cost-effective to rent a car on arrival than to bring your own.
