Plot Synopsis

Winter has held Scandinavia prisoner for many months, locked in ice and silenced by bitter Arctic winds. Longer days and warmer weather transform the land, uncovering a whole new world. But for countless new arrivals, the race for life is just beginning. Each one-hour episode documents the skills that enable various species to thrive in the erratic Nordic lands, where frozen wastes and active volcanoes are present, and each day is a constant fight to survive. With ferocious Winters and short Summers, staying one step ahead of hungry and persistent assassins is the difference between life and death for most species that call Scandinavia home. Highlights from the series include: the ongoing battle for food between brown bears and wolf packs; extreme slow-motion footage of musk oxen duels; Arctic fox cubs making their first foray into a wondrous but deadly world; a visit to Scandinavia's vast and complex coastline; and snapshots of a landscape prone to freezing winters and volcanic fires.
