    Very interesting RIB-tour. It is not only about the Saltstraumen tidal current but also a bit about the rock formations and the life of arctic birds. I think it is a must do activity because it is not something you can see whenever wherever and the landscape is awesome. Someone can see and learn more things.

    Det var en utrolig fin tur, med mange opplevelser! Vi koste oss med nydelig solskinn - og spennende steder. Vi skulle dog ønske at guiden snakket norsk, da det var nesten bare nordmenn ombord (og barn blant dem).
