The Norseman is a 1978 action-adventure film set in the mid-11th century that centers around a group of Vikings led by Thorvald (played by Lee Majors). The film takes place in North America, where the Vikings are attempting to find new land to settle. The film opens with Thorvald and his crew returning to their village after a long journey. They are greeted by their Chieftain, Herjolf (played by Mel Ferrer), who asks them to embark on a perilous journey to seek out new lands. Herjolfs' daughter, Princess Runa (played by Susie Coelho), is also present and pleads with Thorvald to take her with them. Thorvald ultimately agrees to take both Herjolf and Runa with them on their journey.

Along the way, they encounter many challenges, including treacherous waters, rival tribes, and fierce animals. They also come across a group of Native Americans, who they initially see as a threat. However, after an initial conflict, they realize that they can coexist peacefully and even trade with the native people.

As the Vikings continue their voyage, they come across a group of conquistadors led by Juan Carlos (played by Cornel Wilde), who has come to the New World in search of gold. Juan Carlos convinces Herjolf to help him find the gold, promising him a share of it in return. Herjolf agrees to help, and the Vikings and the conquistadors become allies.
