Winter in Sweden is unlike anywhere else on earth, and they are experts at celebrating all the wonders that go along with the snow and ice. There are a number of things to do during your stay, from ice sculpting, lounging in a warm cozy hotel, to extreme winter sports. Book your car hire in Sweden for winter and discover how to really celebrate the snow.
Snow and ice-sculpting is becoming increasingly popular as an art form and activity in Sweden. The winter park in Östersund is the place to visit if you are interested in getting involved in ice sculpting or would just like to admire the work of others. You will find many sculptures on display here throughout the season, and if you would like to try your hand it you can get an ice block of your own as well as the necessary tools to go along with it!
Don't miss Sweden's Kiruna Snow Festival. The highlights of the festival include a snow sculpting competition and the "Swedish Open Championships" which include participation from international teams. The festival also features "yoik" (traditional Lappish singing), tantalizing traditional foods, and lots of local handicraft. Kids love the annual reindeer race that runs through the town. Get around to all the festivities in a Sweden rental car.
If ice sculpting just doesn't get you close enough to complete your experience of the frozen wet stuff, perhaps you would like to stay in an Ice hotel? Ice hotel is an amazing place to stay in Sweden. Not quite an igloo, more like a Sparkling palace made of well, ice.
