  •  /  km From You

A must-do in Bodø!

Immerse yourself in unique countryside, together with your guide, and visit the realm of the European Sea Eagle. The trip continues to Saltstraumen, the worlds strongest tidal current. Four times a day, 350 million cubic meters of water pushes its way through a narrow and long strait. The water forms whirlpools that can be up to ten meters wide and five metres deep. You are safe abroad the sturdy boats and you are very close to the stream as it rushes by. In distance from the large eddies, we study the powerful natural phenomenon at close range. Return to Bodø by bus.

By combining bus and RIB, and splitting the group, we can double the capacity to 240 people. Group 1: Arrive to Saltstraumen by RIB, return to Bodø by bus. Group 2: Arrive with a scenic drive to Saltstraumen by bus, return to Bodø by RIB. The time includes safety briefing and clothing exchange. This is a world-class experience, and Stella Polaris was named the best tour operator along the coast during the Hurtigruten Awards in 2017.
