Saltstraumen Bodo, Norway
Saltstraumen is the worlds largest tidal current. The maelstrom is created in a 3 km long and 150m wide strait between Skjerstad Fjord and the Salten Fjord, 32 km from Bodo town centre.
400million cubic meters of water flow through Saltstraumen in about 6 hours, which is the amount of time it takes for the tides to change & the water to flow the other direction.
