Umea Airport Transportation

A 17th-century haven resting on the shores of the Gulf of Bothnia, Umeå Airport offers a glimpse into one of Sweden’s most scenic locales at an instant. Just south of downtown Umeå, you’ll want to see what’s up river without the worry of getting lost, something that can easily be done with the right ride. Choose between a variety of different rentals ranging from sedans to buses, also keeping in mind the commitment-free drop-offs courtesy of taxis, limousines, and local personal drivers.

UME Transportation
With no train stations and just a bus line running through Ground Transportation, Umeå Airport is a small facility with not a lot of public transport options. Close enough to downtown to utilize the hassle-free option of meet-and-greets, you can reserve a shuttle with either area shuttle or sedan providers to get where you need to go on a budget.

Shared Ride Van
Make sure you see the riverside city in a way that’s comfortable on the body and the wallet, reserving a shared ride van from local shuttle providers for immediate pick-ups. Though shared ride vans are a slower option due to the number of custom drop-offs, the ride can double as a laid-back tour of the city.

Private Van
Fitting at least six passengers under one roof, private vans are the ideal choice for seeing every corner of the city at the ease of the river flowing through it. Book with area shuttle providers to check out a variety of waterside restaurants, or spend the afternoon shopping through the local stores & restaurants at Utopia Mall.

Private Sedan
Get intimate throughout your journey by reserving a private sedan from area sedan providers, taking the priceless gift of quietude everywhere you go, whether it’s to a trendy restaurant near Öbacka’s university scene or for a day of exploring the coastal villages just south of town.

Local Personal Drivers
Another way to see the city is through the eyes of someone who knows just about every aspect of it, a task that can easily be taken care of by a local personal driver. Whether it means spending an afternoon in search of the most serene café or finding the best hideaway beaches for keeping the gulf to yourself, you’ll have premium advice at your fingertips.

Private SUV
Families wanting to stick together throughout the duration of their trip should stay safe and comfortable with a private SUV from local providers. Fitting up to six passengers, the ride offers paradise the moment you arrive, allowing you to take all the time you need at expansive parks on the north side as well as ferries to the Finnish city of Vaasa in the south.

Taxi Cab
Understanding the beauty of speed is the best way to see the power in efficiency. Book a taxi for swift pickups the moment you arrive, whether that means getting to an event at one of three conference centers or beating the traffic on your way out of the NorrlandsOperan.

Stretched Limousine
Stay classy throughout your stay by getting a ride that takes elegance everywhere it goes, booking a stretched limousine from local limo providers to end your trip as beautifully as it started. Enjoy fine dining restaurants like Gotthards Krog, afterward arriving to swanky resorts & hotels for a cocktail in the lobby.

Chartered Bus
If you’ve got a party of over a dozen passengers, reserve a chartered bus to make it across uncharted waters, smooth sailing. Perfect for arriving to expansive locales like the famous Umeå Jazz Festival and the massive Bräntberget Ski Resort, you’ll have a range of attractions to indulge in.

UME Airport Terminals
Arrive to Umeå Airport without worry by knowing the facility is home to a simple layout - a single passenger, single-floor terminal filled with the classic airport amenities and services ranging from shops & restaurants, an information desk, ATMs, and free Wi-Fi.


Umea Airport Shuttles

A simple way to take care of all parts of your trip is by making sure you’ve got a shuttle waiting for you near ground transportation, doing so with the help of either area sedan or taxi cab providers, both of which know the way well and offer free baggage handling service, not to mention handicap accessibility.

Understanding the lay of the land is the first step to having fun no matter what side of town your hotel is at. If you’re staying east of town, explore the unique works at Vasterbotten Museum, while those sticking to the central area have the crème of the crop of landmarks to explore, from astounding churches to riverside views along the scenic promenade. Those hanging out in the southeast side of town near Umeå University have several gastropubs to choose from as well as a more relaxed access point to the same riverside promenade.

Make sure nothing gets mixed up by keeping track of every detail, especially when it comes to your shuttle. Print out your confirmation email the moment it arrives, also studying a terminal map before you arrive. With an easy design, information desks available all day, and an overall subdued atmosphere that makes big crowds rare, you’ll be sure to find your ride without trouble. In the event of an absent ride or wrong pick-up time, contact your service provider to re-schedule.
