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.

Total duration about one hour: 100 kr / Person as Donation
