Saltstraumen, Bodo

(4.3/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
Saltstraumen represents a narrow strait with the strongest tidal current in the world, which makes it popular among divers and anglers. The current produces maelstroms and whirlpools up to 10 m (33 ft) in diameter and 5 m (16 ft) deep. Walk up to the bridge to see the foaming stream from above, or descend to the waterfront to view it up close. The water swarms with various species of fish like cod, halibut, and coalfish, the regional specialty. You can fish from the bridge, the shore, or a boat.

  • Is seen well from the bridge, pay attention to observe the tide times for l ' effect is maximum. Nice view type fjord. Test if you are passing through a Bodo (30 to 40 minutes by car)

  • A very interesting and unique natural phenomenon. You can see huge whirlpools in the water. Be sure to visit during a tide time in the morning or the evening. You can find a daily tide schedule online...  more »
  • 30 min from Bodo, a nice modern bridge overlooks this mixture of marine currents. You can see swirls above but on the other hand it must be more impressive during high tides. We were there at 11: 00 a morning, it's beautiful to look at but no more, so look at the peaks of tide on their site

  • Who is in the area should take a little trip to the strongest tidal current in the world. You will observe here various vortex at high tide. Through our schedule, we came to the tide, but even then we were able to observe some strudel.
