The strongest tidal current in the world, Norway

This is an ever-changing live stream of an incredible nature wonder. Saltstraumen is a small strait with one of the strongest tidal currents in the world (up to 400,000,000 cubic metres passes through every six hours). It is located in the municipality of Bodø in Nordland county, Norway. It is located about 10 kilometres (6.2 mi) southeast of the town of Bodø. The narrow channel connects the outer Saltfjorden to the large Skjerstad Fjord between the islands of Straumøya and Knaplundsøya. The Saltstraumen Bridge (where the camera is located) on Norwegian County Road 17 crosses Saltstraumen.
