In the far north of Europe live the Scandinavians. They inhabit a world of extremes. From the silent Icebergs and Glaciers in the arctic, where life alternates between the perpetual Sunlight and a permanent night, illuminated only by the Northern Lights. Majestic fjords and never-ending reaches of pine forest. Rolling fields and the sunlit shallows of the Baltics. In this relative isolation, the Scandinavians grew as a race and developed their own distinct culture. A culture that has reached an expression in so many different ways.
