Scandinavia is a group of countries in northern Europe that officially includes Norway, Denmark and Sweden. Many people also consider Finland and Iceland to be a part of Scandinavia, though this is technically not the case. They are, however, nordic like the Scandinavian countries.
Scandinavia is somewhat hard to define geographically, since it is first and foremost a cultural and linguistic concept. Under the latter concept, Denmark is included. However, the geographic definition of Scandinavia only includes mainland Norway and Sweden (and part of Finland), as Denmark is considered a part of northern Europe.
