Alan Rogers Review of PlusCamp Saltstraumen
PlusCamp Saltstraumen is a popular site is in a very scenic location. It has a magnificent backdrop and is close to one of the strongest maelstroms in the world. It is an easy short walk to this outstanding natural phenomenon. As well as 23 cabins, the site has 80 simple touring pitches, mostly on level, gravel hardstandings, with water, wastewater and electricity (10A). Twenty ‘softer’ pitches are available for tents. The nearby fjord is renowned for the prolific numbers of coalfish and cod caught from the shore. Many try their hand at catching the evening meal. You are advised to arrive by late afternoon.
At the Saltstraumen Maelstrom, 400 million cubic metres of water are pressed through a 150m wide strait at a rate of about 20 knots in the course of six hours. The effect is greatest at new or full moons and tide tables to find the optimum time to visit are available from reception.
