The Tide rushes through the narrows 4 times a day as the tide flows in and out of the Fjord.
However if you miss that window of opportunity to see the tidal rush, then its really a bit of a non-event.

This is an interesting place to visit. It doesn’t look very interesting in the first place, but once you know how much water is pressed through this narrow strait and once you see the water movement on the surface, you’ll be impressed. Saltstraumen is also...More
The tide was out, so this may have been more impressive at a different time of day. As it was, the information that we were given was interesting but we didn’t see any impressive whirlpools. If you have the ability, you would want to plan...More
I guess I was expecting something spectacular. Its ok, but overall disappointing even though we were there at high tide. I would not have spent the money to go there again on an excursion from the ship. If you have a car, it would be...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.
