A Holiday by Car in Sweden
Sweden is the perfect setting for car hire. Driving is a great way to explore this stunning and diverse country. If you're driving from north to south, you'll cover around 1,600 km from the mountains, over the Arctic Circle, to the southern plains around Skåne. On your journey, you'll enjoy incredible landscapes, picturesque towns and cities, and super driving routes in this peaceful, Nordic country. On the whole, driving in Sweden is safe and easy for both longer tours and day trips. The Right of Public Access means you're free to enjoy the countryside almost everywhere. Also, the Swedish Vision Zero safety goal aims to have zero fatal traffic accidents, and the authorities are working hard to achieve this, making Sweden's roads some of the world's safest.

The Blue Road (Blå Vägen) traverses Sweden from west to east through a serene and thinly-populated forest – a really scenic route. Take the B4 Highway through Sweden's High Coast and enjoy this UNESCO World Heritage Site. The drive only takes about 1.5 hours and you'll be rewarded with a unique experience.
