Saltstraumen Church (Norwegian: Saltstraumen kirke) is a parish church in the municipality of Bodø in Nordland county, Norway. It is located in the village of Saltstraumen. The church is part of the Saltstraumen parish in the Bodø deanery in the Diocese of Sør-Hålogaland. The white, wooden church was built in 1886. Around 1900 it was moved about 300 metres (980 ft) away from its original location due to soil instability.[1]
