Birtavarre, at the inner Kåfjord, is the gateway to the spectacular Gorsabrua and to Halti - Finland highest mountain.
Turning off the E6 you will first see a turn to the right towards the campground High-North Camping where you can rent out cabins and buy fast-food during the afternoons in the summer.
Continuing to the left is a gas station and a Joker shop, both open every day, also on the weekends.
A couple of hundred meters further, you can find a Coop supermarket that sells groceries and functions as a post office. Here you can buy almost everything.
Opposite from Coop, you find the local handycraft store Husfliden that sells local handcraft. Situated around 500 meters further into the valley of Birtavarre is a small medical center "Helsestasjon” in case you need medical support (Telephone: +47 479 72 797).
