Hurtigruten - « Le plus beau voyage en mer du monde »
Café Kjelen is located at the heart of Saltstraumen, with the best view and fishing spots there.
When the tide comes in, we have a panoramic view of the massive forces that the tidal current represents as it moves 400 million cubic metres of water between the Saltfjord and the Skjærstadfjord. An amazing spectacle, if you ask us …
Slightly further down from the café you will find some of the very best fishing spots for those who like to use spinning rods. If you don’t have your tackle with you, you can buy most of what you need here. Our excellent restaurant serves 3-course fish meals with appropriate wines. We also specialize in a local dish – møsbrømlefse, a thin pastry with a heavy sweet brown cheese fill. We also serve dinner and other á la carte dishes, in addition to coffee and cakes. Whether you are looking for a good meal or simply wish to warm yourself with a cup of coffee on a miserable day, you are very welcome here.
