Richard Bangs' Adventures with Purpose Norway: Quest for the Viking Spirit

More than 1,000 years ago, Vikings from Norway terrorized Europe; their legendary raids made their name synomous with marauding pirates. Today, this ruggedly beautiful country houses the Nobel Peace Center and stands one of the most eco-friendly countries on earth.

How could such a progressive nation spring from such a violent past? Do Vikings represent a romantic revision of a grisly past or cynical pandering to a growing tourist trade?

In his latest Adventures With Purpose special, adventurer Richard Bangs seeks out the modern-day "Viking Spirit" in Norway's forbidding Arctic north, its mountainous sea coast and its bustling cities.

This documentary is the fifth edition to the Telly- and CINE Golden Eagle-winning series of specials, which include Egypt: Quest for the Lord of the Nile, New Zealand: Quest for Kaitiakitanga, Switzerland: Quest for the Sublime and Morocco: Quest for the Kasbah.
