Saltstraumen Saltstraumen No Data


This small strait has one of the most powerful tidal currents in the world and consequently it regularly creates a maelstrom of whirlpools in the waters that are visible from the banks and make for an impressive visual sight



Getting There

From the centre of town take a number 200 (2 to 4 buses a day) or 300 (1 to 4 buses a day) to the Straum°ya stop just beyond the Salstraumen - the bus crosses over the top before arriving at the stop. Bus journey is about 45 minutes. Alternatively several tours operate on a daily basis from most hotels in town out to the Salstraumen which removes the issue of a potentially long wait for a bus back into town as they don't connect particularly well.
