|Scandinavia lies within Northern Europe. The land area is largely represented by the joined northern countries of Norway, Sweden and Finland, which are connected to mainland Europe by Russia in the east. Denmark is situated within the south of Scandinavia and is physically attached to mainland Europe with the aid of Germany. The island mass of Iceland is also considered a part of Scandinavia. The landmass is comprised of high, rocky glacial elevations in the north, sweeping down to rolling hills and a relatively low-lying plateau in the south. The highest point of elevation is Glittertind in Norway at a height of 2464m. Other natural features include lakes Vanern, Vattern and the many inland lakes of Finland, not forgetting the beautiful Fjords of Norway. The north of Scandinavia embraces the Arctic Circle and is home to some of the coldest regions on the planet. |
The industry of Scandinavia includes hydroelectric power and timber. In fact, the region of Scandinavia is one of the biggest wood product manufacturers in the world. Traditionally logs would be floated downstream to factories, although modern methods of transport are now favoured for the maneuvering of the wood.
