Karasjok is the capital city of the Sami people of Norway. It is also home to the Sami parliament, the S??mediggi. Apart from this, the city does not really offer a lot in terms of tourist attractions but it can serve as a good day trip destination or travel base for exploring the county of Finnmark.
With a car rental in Karasjok, visitors can get around notable sites in the city before going out to more popular travel destinations. Aside from the Sami Parliament, the Sami Museum and the church built in 1807 are worth visiting as well. The church is a known attraction because it was inspired by Sami architectural designs.
For those who happen to be visiting during the summer, a drive to Lakselv using a cheap car hire in Karasjok is in order. Salmon fishing is the most popular leisure attraction in the town. There are also small golf courses in the area for those who want to experience playing under the midnight sun.
Further out, travellers can also get a car hire in Karasjok and go for a drive up to Alta, the Aurora Borealis city. Its prehistoric rock carvings are classified as a UNESCO World Heriage Site. These forms of rock art are located in five different parts in Alta with the largest situated in Hjemmeluft where the Alta Museum is also located.
Lakself Airport is the nearest air facility to the town of Karasjok. It provides daily connections to other destinations in Norway including Tromso, Alta and Kirkenes. During the summer, flights to Oslo are also available.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?
To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card.
