Gas cartridges for tourist strove near Harstad or Evenes

Hi,

Please tell where I can buy gas screw-locking (threaded) cartridges for tourist strove in Harstad or near Evenes airport.

My friends and I - we are bicycle tourists and we arrive to Evenes airport at 23:55 on Friday. We are going to begin our trip (to Lofoten direction) on our bicycles right from the airport, but we would like to buy the gas cartridges somewere close to the airport.

Maybe there is some gas-station for cars near the airport where we can buy them.

Or it is possible to ask someone of airport stuff to dring them for us.

Or at least any information about tourist shops in Harstad or Narvik..

Thanks a lot!

They sell gas canisters in sport stores, but there does not seem to be any in Evenes. Harstad is the nearest.

I also seem to have encountered gas canisters in petrol stations, but they don't seem to have their products on the internet.

Finally, there are many different systems. I use this, which seems to be quite common in Norway:

Thanks!

Is there any website with map and contacts of petrol stations.

And do you known exactly some sport shop at Harstad?

The system on your picture is ok for me.

There is a sports shop right in the center if Harstad. In the main shopping area - a pedestrian street. There is also a petrol station not far from the airport, you should be able to find it on google street view, after the crossroads direction Harstad. Going to Harstad just for a gas canister would be some detour if you are going direction Lofoten.

This petrol station close to the airport might have gas. But it is closed when you arrive:

The sports and fishing equipment store, Parabolflua, will probably have what you are looking for...

By the way, if you have some extra days, after you have seen Lofoten, take Senja too!

Brainspin, thanks a lot!! I've contacted with a man working on that station.

My question is solved!

Thanks a lot to klimaflyktning and GuideGunnar also.
