Beautiful nature phenomenon! Before I got there I didn’t think it was that exciting, but it was so cool just to se such powerful stream and beautiful nature.

Daytrip from Bodø, only half hour away. Parked and walked around for an hour or so, nice pathways to the most scenic spots. Worth going to, with the drive being quite scenic as well.

Amazing to see the currents, best experienced on a boat. A boat trip also gives the opportunity to explore the landscape around. Must see when visiting Bodø!

A location to die for. Water bursting in and out and a breattaking scenery, with alpine mountains and wonderful colors. Rich and plentiful fishing for the eager one.

Amazing to watch the swirling waters. A boat ride is a nice albeit a scary thing to do. Beautiful places to picnic and watch the waters.

The view of the tidal current and village is nice. Also the short walk is worth your while, especially since your likely to be driving quite a bit afterwards its nice to stretch the legs here

Really impressive to see the power of water. Try to catch some fish too, but it was not our day... A lot of people try to so just bring your gear. Good to look at the tide tables to see when the best moment will...More

I think, the best view is from the bridge above! It is fully accessible.

If you are travelling by car Saltstraumen is just 30 minutes south of the city of Bodø. And this the start of the National Tourist Route Helgelandskysten. A memory for life, spectacular mountains, fjords, lakes... More
