Cars, RV Rentals, Taxi & Transfers

Traveling by car can be a good way to explore Jämtland Härjedalen. Whether you go with your own car or rent a car we recommend you to pay attention to the road conditions which can vary within Sweden, as well as within the region of Jämtland Härjedalen. Wintertime the roads are likely to be slippery – studded tires are a good idea and make sure you always have a bit of extra time, check weather forecasts and look out for moose and reindeers on the side of the road!
