Scandinavia includes the present-day Nordic countries Denmark, Norway, and Sweden. Iceland and Finland are often considered part of Scandinavia as well. Scandinavia was the ancestral home of the Vikings; they and their descendants have migrated as far away as France, Scotland, Russia, Iceland, North America, and Australia.
The Sami (also known as Lapps) are a separate, non-Scandinavian ethnic group living in Finland.
Certain hereditary conditions are more common among people with Scandinavian ancestry.
