Sabetjohk Bridge was manufactured by an Austrian company, assembled locally on flat ground and airlifted by helicopter to the site where it was lowered down on to two concrete foundations, one at each side of the canyon. The pedestrian bridge was officially opened on 20 August 2011 and is part of Kåfjord District Council's network of hiking routes. The path to the bridge, which starts among the remains of the Birtavarre mines in Ankerlia, also includes part of the route to Halti, Finland's tallest mountain.
