“Shocking and dramatic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2012

Im glad I took the excursion to the Saltstraumer. The journey was great, with breathtaking scenery. The wind was wild and you could hardly stand up. The water was terrifying and you could see the whirlpools. We went over the bridge on the coach first and that was very amusing, the coach was rocking about in the wind. Im really glad I went it was really scary and very memorable. Much better than the north cape excursion.

“Saltstraumen - a wonder of nature”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2011

If you like to see raw nature at its best, then don't miss a rib-boat trip from Bodo in Northern Norway to see the 'Saltstraumen' - this is an amazing natural phenomenon, where the incoming tide funnels in to the fjord and creates whirlpools and changing water levels. And - if you are lucky - you will also see white-tailed sea eagles!
