Visited 5he site midtide and found the tide rushing in through the middle with the huge eddies on both/sides impressive. The walk down to the water’s edge is easy with plenty of seating from which to watch birds diving for fish. Local boats were out...More
A natural phenomenon about 30min drive from bodo airport. Have seen a similar near Osaka Japan. This is bigger and yet closer to land . nothing spectacular but worth a visit with a car and time to spend before the moskennes ferry

You can go down below the bridge on either side, and crossing it gives good views, especially...More

We had a hire car and parked one side of the bridge and walked over it to the other side. Didn't pay anything - not sure the boat ride would be worth it anyway. The height of the bridge gives you great views. It was April so... More
We had a hire car and parked one side of the bridge and walked over it to the other side. Didn't pay anything - not sure the boat ride would be worth it anyway. The height of the bridge gives you great views. It was April so pretty cold - good to have a car to hop back into.
