Quest for the Viking Spirit
Richard Bangs’ Adventures with Purpose. Introducing PBSs hottest new travel show a show that combines adventure with travel that makes a difference, travel that positively impacts the world. Join host Richard Bangs, the father of modern adventure travel as he journeys across the planet in search of ecological challenges and ecological solutions.
Richard’s latest entry into his Adventures with Purpose series: Norway: Quest for the Viking Spirit.
A thousand years ago Vikings set out from the fjords of Norway striking fear across Europe. Yet today this ruggedly beautiful country is the home of the Nobel Peace Center, of explorers and adventure travelers and one of the most eco-friendly countries on earth. Bangs’ quest is to discover how such a progressive nation grew from such a violent past—if modern Norway is a result of its Viking heritage or a reaction to it. This time Richard’s adventures take him the length of Norway on a Quest for the Viking Spirit.
Enjoy spectacular scenery as Richard explores the coast of Norway searching for the Viking history, all while aboard Hurtigruten’s exquisite vessels.
