Slide Show & Discussion: Magical Whales & Seascapes of Lofoten
We created a 35 minutes multimedia show, which is the first slideshow that concentrates on the nine species of whales and dolphins in Vestfjord. Seeing the photos of those magical animals in combination with their sounds and music is a unforgettable experience. But it’s not only the big whales, beauty can be found everywhere. There is a multitude of birds, life thrives in tide pools and the crystal clear water. Enjoy magnificent seascapes in midnight-sun and winter storms.
The whole presentation can be seen at the Lofoten Arctic Hotel at “Skata” in Henningsvaer. We offer to present the show, plus a discussion afterwards with a biologist that can explain more about the whales of Lofoten and our research projects.
Total duration about one hour: 150 kr / Person
There’s a short teaser in You Tube, enjoy!
