Saltfjellet is a remote and wild mountain plateau in the north of Norway, between Mo i Rana and Bodø. The flat plateau is broken by several mountain ranges, running up to 1800 m, and wooded valleys. The mountain scenery gets wilder towards the ocean. In the south west of the plateau, the glacier Svartisen is reached.
The entire area, with all its variety, is well served by little self-service huts, but the remoteness implies you have to carry your food for the entire trip.
Saltfjellet is situated between other fine area's with equally impressive wide landscapes, barren mountain slopes, wild rivers and ice fields. To the south you will enter the mountains of Rana and then Okstindan. To the north lies Sulitjelmafjellene, and where this ends, the Nordkalottleden takes over to keep you on trail for another month to Kautokeino in the far north.
