Spotting a sea eagle? During the boat trip you will also have a great opportunity to spot the white-tailed sea eagle. Bodø and Saltstraumen is well known as one of the best areas to see these large birds in the wild.
Saltstraumen tidal current is one of Norway’s more unusual natural wonders and is claimed as the largest tidal current in the world. Saltstraumen is created when the tide fills or empties the Skjerstad fjord. The 150 m wide strait then appears like a very strong river. Up to 400 million cubic metres of seawater forces its way through the 150 m wide strait every six hours.
When to be there? We plan the trip to ensure you will be in the middle of the current when it is at its strongest.
