Explore Salten offers adventures on sea and on land for solo travelers and groups/companies.

We have 20 years of experience with delivering adventure to travelers: from the single solo traveler and small groups to groups of hundreds of tourists.

Floating office in the heart of Bodø

Our base is in the Bodø harbour, on our floating office right outside of the Stormen library.

Here you’ll find our boats, our equipment, offices and meeting rooms where we create adventures for our customers. In addition to our own boats, we rent extra boats for bigger events.

Collaboration and network

Explore Salten have a big network of capable and professional partners.

This enables us to offer a diverse assortment of activities, food experiences and accommodation of high quality. In addition to our talented partners in Bodø, we collaborate with tour operators in Helgeland, Steigen and Lofoten.

For Explore Salten it’s important that our guests experience great adventures at sea and on land in a safe environment.

Good service and communication is important to us. We are happy to offer different activities together in order to give our guests memorable experiences.


We are flexible and offer accommodations for people with disabilities or other needs and wishes.
