Saltstraumen - the world's strongest tidal current.

Saltstraumen, the world's strongest tidal current, occurs every 6 hours when water masses (salt water) of close to 400 million m3 pass at a speed of up to 20 knots through the 3 km long and 150 m wide strait between Saltfjorden and Skjerstadfjorden.

At the same time, current vortices (boilers) are formed that can grow up to 10 m in diameter with a depth of 4-5 m. March is the month with the largest tidal difference and the current is then at its strongest, the strongest is when there is a full moon.

Saltstraumen is a world-famous fishing paradise for deep-sea fishing with rich deposits of e.g. saithe, cod, catfish and halibut.

The time when the current is at its strongest varies, see the tide table so you get the best experience.
