Sea salt from the world's strongest current

Sea water from Saltstraumen is evaporated in order to extract the sea salt from the water. All the processes are by hand with no help from machines. Come join us on a trip to the factory to see the impressing handcraft that results in delicious sea salt with a raw taste of sea. 

RIB from Bodø harbor to Saltstraumen

The trip starts in Bodø harbor, where we go by RIB to Saltstraumen. On the way, you get to experience the world's strongest current, Saltstraumen, and maybe even the sea eagle? At the factory you get to learn more about the process of extracting the salt. 


We provide the necessary equipment for the RIB ride; life jackets, warm suits, hat, mittens and glasses.


This trip can be carried out all year round, but is of course weather dependent.


The trip will take approx. 2-3 hours.
