Part of the Innherad region, Steinkjer is located in Norway's Nord-Tr?�ndelag county. It is now the municipality's administrative centre, having been populated since the Stone Age. Many stone carvings in the town give proof of this, one in Bardal and one in B?�lareinen. The latter boasts near life-sized etchings of animals.
With lots of wildlife and sightseeing in the surrounding area, the best way to see it all is by car hire in Steinkjer. Mountains in the neighbouring Verran municipality are good for hiking, and Sweden is less than 40 miles to the east. Namdalseid and Sn??sa to the north and Verdal and Inder?�y to the south are also easily reached by cheap car hire in Steinkjer.
The landscape in Steinkjer, with its rolling hills, open fields and dense forests are also great for exploring, and are inhabited by a rich array of wildlife. Lake L?�msen, for example, is the premier breading spot for Slavonian Grebe, with the surrounding areas home to many more common Scandinavian species, such as Fieldfares and Redwings.
Also easy to reach by car rental in Steinkjer is the Bl??fjella-Skj?�kerfjella National Park and Byahalla, the most northern hemiboreal (deciduous temperate) forest in the world. Many species, such as Hazel, Hedge Woundwort, Garlic Mustard and Wych Elm can be found here.
Steinkjer is also great for the arts and has one of the most prominent music scenes in Norway. The Steinkjerfestivalen, held in August each year, sees the town's streets littered with trading booths and public performances.
Frequently asked questions
Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest?
Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.
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. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.
