How do I get to Saltstraumen Camping?
Saltstraumen Camping is located by Riksvei 17, 33 kilometers from Bodø, by Saltstraumbrua. Bus (lines # 4, # 200 and # 300) from Bodø airport and city center takes about 40 - 55 min. The nearest bus stop is at Saltstraumen church, by the Saltstraumen bridge.
Reception opening hours
Saltstraumen Camping is open all year round. During the summer season, our reception is open Monday to Friday 8-23, Saturday and Sunday 9-22. We have the most necessary in our little kiosk. Arriving outside of opening hours, find a free space and come to the reception the following day for registration and payment. Service house and Wi-Fi are open. Out of season we are most often present during the daytime. If you do not find someone at the reception, call 75 58 75 60 or 90 09 83 62 (Geir).
Washing of cabins upon departure
Washing of the cabins is not included in the price. If you wish to book your laundry upon departure, please inform the reception. Laundry costs 300 kr.
Do all cabins have their own bathroom?
The cabins 1-20 have their own bathroom with WC and shower. Our old cabins, No. 21-24, have no water. The apartments have a private bathroom with WC and shower.
Can you have animals in the cabins?
Yes, we allow dogs at our campsite, but we require that the animals do not stay in bed or sofa and that you are careful with the cleaning on departure. (vacuum cleaner will make you borrow by calling at the reception). Keep in mind that others may be afraid of dogs or allergies, so keep dogs on the campsite's outdoor area. Please pick up all dog breeds.
Restaurant, cafe and spa hotel nearby
Close to us (200 meters) we have Saltstraumen Hotel with restaurant and wellness department / SPA. Down by Saltstraumen we have Cafe Kjelen, known for its good møsbrømlefse and nice views over the eddies. About 1 km inland in the fjord over the bridges is Tuvsjyen, a Stone Age experience with food served in earthenware.
Is it far to go to see the actual salt strain, and there are fishing opportunities?
Saltstraumen is located 250 meters away, a nice hiking trail goes down to the stream and along the water's edge below the bridge. The path is wheelchair accessible. Under the bridge and along the trail, it is nice to sit and watch and listen to the whirlwings. Ask at the reception about when the strain is strongest this day. Fishing places are within walking distance of both input and output power.
Where can we rent a boat to go fishing?
Saltstraumen Brygge, right on the other side of both bridges, on Tuv, has fishing boats for rent per day. Phone 924 55 100.
Is there a cooling and cooling room at the campsite?
Yes, we have both newly built cabinets and newly built lockers at the campsite. Fish salads should be thrown in containers reserved for this, but we prefer to drop the fish down at the fishing spot and let the seas enjoy it.
Can I book a cottage / apartment for the next Easter already?
Yes, via our online booking you should be able to book well in advance. If not, send us an email and we will be happy to help.
