Contact us

In our main experience, The Maelstrom tour, we will tell and show you how the landscape and tidal current have been formed over thousands of years while watching the amazing sights Saltstraumens nature provides at its peak times - from its best spots.

Immerse yourself in tales about the people and Norway's second oldest settlement findings (11.000+ years old!) and the vikings who have lived in the area, including the dramatic story of the local Viking king 'Raud den Rame' and his refusal to turn to Christianity at the hands of Olav Tryggvason.

Join us and take a look at the unique marine conservation area considered a “blue national park”.
