Saltstraumen Hotel

Living in breathtaking nature, courses and meetings with spectacular views, food and drink with emphasis on local cuisine and last but not least nice hosts!

About us

Saltstraumen Hotel is located 35 minutes by car from Bodø city center and only a short walk from Saltstraumen – the strongest tidal current in the world.

The 28 rooms at the hotel are cleanly furnished with an emphasis on a good night’s rest. All our rooms are located on the first floor, and it is possible to park the car directly in front of the room.

In addition to the rooms we do offer accomodation in 12 cabins, which were completely renovated in 2020. All of the cabins have two bedrooms and two bathrooms (hotel standard), four comfortable beds, a living room with TV and sofa, a dining table and a kitchen with the possibility to prepare dinner. Maybe you would like to try your luck at fishing and prepare a delicious fish dish afterwards?

The hotel has two conference rooms on the top floor: “Storetoppen” and “Lilletoppen”. Both rooms offer spectacular views of the Saltfjord, Saltstraumen and Børvasstindan. They share a roof terrace with panoramic view – perfect for coffee breaks in the fresh air. Together they can accommodate 120 people in a parliamentary arrangement for courses and conferences and celebrations for up to 100 people.

All our meeting rooms are equipped with projector, flip chart, air conditioning and everything else you need for a successful meeting.

Our dining room “Schjølberg” is located on the main floor of the hotel. This is also an ideal for events with up to 100 people.

The hotel also has a very nice wellness area with jacuzzi, infrared sauna, Finnish sauna and relaxation area. In connection with this, you will also find a small gym room, which you can use freely as a guest.
