This is one of Europe's last great wildernesses, Scandinavia is a realm of epic contrasts, where ancient mountains meet lush forest and the land is torn by both ice and fire.

Nordic Wild follows the lives of Nordic animals in stunning HD as they battle against the elements.

Nordic Wild: Reborn
As the bitter Arctic winter loosens its grip, Scandinavia's young animals explore their home. But the gentler seasons won't last long; these bear and fox cubs, barnacle goose chicks and young owls are going to have to grow up fast.

Nordic Wild: Furious Life
Autumn on the tundra is mating season for the mighty musk oxen - shaggy giants colliding at speeds of up to 40 kilometres per hour as females wait for the victor. Elk, capercaillie and dear also battle for opportunities to breed.

Nordic Wild: At the Edge
For some of the North's inhabitants, such as Sweden's sea eagles, the frozen seas of winter make hunting hard. But for others, like the majestic polar bears, summer and the melting ice make for hard and hungry times.

Nordic Wild: Ultimate Survivors
Life in Scandinavia isn't easy, but its animals have strategies for survival. The Arctic fox conserves heat brilliantly, and is furry down to the soles of its feet. Meanwhile, on Iceland, a tough breed of horse has evolved to thrive in harsh conditions.
