The Nordic countries are Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden, including the dependencies in the immediate vicinity.

These dependencies are Faroe Islands (Denmark), Greenland (Denmark, not in Europe geograpically), Åland (Finland) which all have a varying degree of self-government. Sometimes Svalbard (Norway) is also included, but that dependency is governed by a special international treaty, although often considered an integral part of Norway.

The term Scandinavia is often used as a synonym for the Nordic countries, especially in North America, although it is not historically nor geographically accurate.
