A new major attraction in the Arctic Circle is on its way and Dorte Mandrup was just selected to build ‘the whale’ ahead of other major contractors. Norway has announced the building will be constructed in Andenes — a site located at the northernmost tip of Andøya — an island 300 kilometers inside the Arctic Circle.

The site won the bid thanks to its proximity to Bleiksdjupa, the deep sea valley known to see a high traffic of migrating whales. The area has become one of the best places to see this migrating mammal in its natural habitat all around the world and the attraction will surely bring a lot of visitors to witness their majesticness.
