Scandanavia is, technically, the long arm of land between the North Sea and Artic Sea and the Baltic Sea.

As a historo-geographic term, it encompasses not only this landmass, modernly Norway and Sweden, but also the adjacent area of Finland, Lappland, and Denmark, the last being included mostly because of the cultural ties which existed during the period prior to the Christianisation of Scandanavia between the inhabitants of Denmark and Norway/Sweden.
