Polar Opposites

Polar Opposites video presentation will take you on a journery through Lappish nature and across the four distinct seasons of the region. Observe what days are like during the darkest time of the year, experience the sky ablaze as the northern lights dance across it, and bask in the bright sunshine of the midnight sun. Place yourself in a snow-covered forest, witness reindeer herding, and warm yourself by a crackling fire. Let the northern animals act as your guides to the remote, Lappish landscapes.

Shown non stop in Arktikum. Duration 9 minutes. Please, note: if the Polarium theatre is reserved for conference use, there are no shows.
