Join Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall on a journey across the land of the eternal sun as he discovers the Scandinavian way of life

Scandinavia is a rugged, wild, untamed landscape, yet a recent UN study revealed that Denmark is the happiest country in the world, closely followed by Norway and Sweden. In recent years, the world has gone crazy for Scandinavian crime drama, furniture, fashion and even food. So what is Scandinavia getting right; after all they live half the year in darkness, alcohol is really expensive and they pay around 50% on taxes? Could their secret be in the ancient, primal relationship they have with their wilderness? Part travelogue, part culinary feast this new series from River Cottage's Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall is filled with breathtaking landscapes, extraordinary characters, fascinating design and food unlike anything you've seen before. Each episode focuses on a different country, Demark, Sweden and Norway, with Hugh's journey taking him fishing in spectacular Fjords, foraging through luscious pine forests, diving in icy waters for sea urchins and hunting for wild boars and Nordic Elk, all whilst finding new factual territory to explore some of Scandinavia's recent success, blending cookery, travel, heritage and history. From IKEA to ABBA, Absolut vodka to Volvo, join Hugh as he gets under the skin of Scandinavia.
